purple, purple flowers the color of Twilight

I'm feeling purple, said Princess Haiku and will blend in perfectly with the twilight.

Chedwick is looking for something different to read and once I start thinking about books it's hard to stop and so here is a summer reading list.

The Girl Who Played Go, Shan Sa
Stones from the River, Ursula Helgi

The picture at the top is incredile, a bit blinding, however it is weird and I find it is art.
I like it

You know, i have a cusin living in California (los Altos) and she is married with an american
Every month, she meets some French women married and living in america
and they buy and discuss about French recent books
She needs that. Meet French people and speak French quickly, because she lives in america for such a long time. About 30 years.

I just found a copy of the Alchemists at a book sale and started reading it this morning. We must be on the same wave link. I am compiling a master list from suggestions I've been reading from different people. It's a way to get outside your usual reading zone. Will check out some other of your suggestions also. thanks..
