  41. "artist emerging"

    I think this is what happens to artists of all kinds (writers included), until they finally put down their tools. They are constantly emerging.

  42. Funny to read about Springtime while it gets darker and colder here on this continent. Love the 'seahorse' (is that the name in English too??)
