  2. Catherine,
    imagine, somebody gave the book to me in Italian,
    back when I was barely twenty. Now I wonder if it was meant as a message. ;-)

  9. That book had such an impact on me in my 20s and I read again last year ... love it. Good old Richard Bach.
    "Illusions" was great too!

    Wonderful little post Merisi!

  11. I know seagulls have a bad reputation with some people, but I adore them and all the associations they carry of sea-scapes. Stunning picture!
