Sunday Postcard - Mr. Right


This challenge stumped me at first, then I thought out of the box.....'way out of the box! In 40 B.C. Cicero was Mr. Right in the Roman Empire. He was a philosopher, statesman, lawyer, political theorist, and one of the greatest orators of his time. His words are still quoted today. How right can you be? The background is from Kubivet. Thank you for stopping by!

  3. Fantastic, Bev. I love the way you are always thinking outside the frame. Your picture is so elegant and beautifully composed and the quote is wonderful. We are not Tweedledum and Tweedledee this week. My Mr Right is as crass as yours is superior!

  11. You have done a marvellous job here Bev! Firstly in thinking of Cicero and then what you have made of him; I love those corners you've used.
    Oh if only we all lived 'well and honestly' the world would certainly be a better place.
