Thanks for your comments on my blog.
So glad to be reading your lovely posts againReplyDelete
Wow...I could walk right down the path and into that house...ReplyDelete
My favorite was the one from Wollzeile. I could see curling up here with coffee and good book.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous -- that first picture and that beautiful color -- and the second with the mysterious sheer curtain -- and the leas with the snow - - and - - and --ReplyDelete
such an IMAGINATIVE (and lovely) collection of images.ReplyDelete
Beautiful images, beautiful words. Pessoa keeps appearing here in blogworld. I will have to find his work. Thank you, Merisi! (love that first door--or is it a window?)ReplyDelete
"The Book of Disquiet" is available as a Penguin Classics paperback. Good to have on hand, not only in moments of disquiet. ;-)

you are welcome,
and thank you!
@ Gypsy Purple,
good to have you back! :-)
@ Sandi McBride,
I was going to answer that it's a lovely sleepy hollow, but that could be misunderstood. ;-)
Just past that house I drove right into the clouds, or fog. I had an eerie feeling, I confess. ;-)
I'll show you the place during your next visit to Vienna.
You'd sit a floor above the pavement, looking down. *grin*
@ Vicki Lane,ReplyDelete
yes, that first picture,
the beloved Strudlhof Steps:
Any way you turn, beauty.
Sometimes I feel bad about images "left on the cutting floor" - this post was an exercise in finding a connection among just such images. ;-)
i love the quote. and the top picture is my favourite!ReplyDelete
