Summer IX

When the sun is shining, I can do anything; no mountain is too high, no trouble too difficult to overcome.

All in all, it was a never-to-be-forgotten summer… one of those summers which, in a fortunate combination of delightful weather, delightful friends, and delightful doing, come as near perfection as anything can come in this world.

The world always seems brighter when you’ve just made something that wasn’t there before.

Art is standing with one hand extended into the universe and one hand extended into the world, and letting ourselves be a conduit for passing energy.

Albert Einstein

If art is to have a special train, the critic must keep some seats reserved on it.

Oscar Wilde

Trains are wonderful…. To travel by train is to see nature and human beings, towns and churches, and rivers, in fact, to see life.

¡Vacaciones!

¡Por fin han llegado las vacaciones!
Dos semanas en Portugal y en la vecina España.
Sol, playa y diversión.
Tapas, vino verde y sardinas.
¡Cuidense!
¡Hasta pronto!

Attention au départ!

En route!
On part deux semaines en vacances.
Il était temps!
Un voyage à quatre.
Des moments de faux rires et de folies.
Le Portugal et l’Espagne nous attendent.
Profitez de chaque jour et prenez soin de vous.
Toujours.
A bientôt mes amis.

Dolce farniente

Here we go!
Two weeks ahead of us.
We will certainly make the best out of it.
Just before August ends and on time for « la rentrée ».
The four of us together in Portugal and Spain.
Visiting family and friends.
Away from home.
Take care!
Be safe!
Be happy!
See you (very) soon!

Outono antes do tempo

Reprise

Piso as folhas que deslizam aos meus pés
Sinto a brisa que me gela o corpo
Antecipo a tempestade
Que chega sem avisar
A terra mudou de cor
Vestiu-se de verde e castanho
O Verão amuou
Talvez nos visite no próximo ano.

I love summertime more than anything else in the world. That is the only thing that gets me through the winter, knowing that summer is going to be there.
