  1. Merisi, it's fun to have this glimpse at July 2006. I would say that your eye for a wonderful photo opportunity was very, very good then, and that your skill at finding light as your colleague has gotten better and better!

    I also must say that I love the look of that ice cream. xo

  2. Frances,
    thank you!
    Back then my blog was exclusively for my friends, or so I thought (I had no idea that strangers were able to read it too!). Photography was just a means to "write" a daily diary of life in my new home.
    The ice cream? Vanilla with chocolate sauce. My daughter and my son love it. I won't go near it. I am more the gelato affocato type (a scoop vanilla, topped with hot espresso coffee) or one scoop of violets ice cream with whipped cream at Demel's.

    Where are you from?

    Is that you in the pic?

  4. Does Doestevsky go with ice cream? I'd think more with gruel. :)

  5. BEAUTIFUL...and sooo inspiring!!! ...and so lovely seeing a young gir reading it...!!

    Might be a SUBLIME INVITATION for our young generation to read...and read...!!!!!!

    Have a wonderful summer, cara!!!!!

    ciao ciao elvira

  6. Classic! We went out for ice cream last night much like this--without the Dostoevsky, I'm afraid...wonderful, Merisi!

  7. It's nice to see someone reading a book!

  8. © Anonymous:
    Where am I from? Sometimes I ask myself!

    Pablo Neruda wrote these lines in another context, but they speak to me also of being from nowhere and everywhere (which is not necessarily a bad thing):

    If you think it long and mad,
    the wind of banners
    that passes through my life,
    and you decide
    to leave me at the shore
    of the heart where I have roots,
    that on that day,
    at that hour,
    I shall lift my arms
    and my roots will set off
    to seek another land.

  9. Charles Gramlich,
    Russia and ice - a bit prosaic, I guess. *giggles*

    elvira pajarola,
    I feel very blessed my young one loves to read.
    Una bella estate anche a te,

  10. A Brush with Color,
    Sue, my daughter had a long summer reading list, and every now and then she needed a change of scenery.

    Sonia A. Mascaro,
    it's in the family, voracious readers. ;-)

  11. Love it. I love catching people reading and then spying the name of their book.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
