  2. I was just thinking how the use of the word little or tiny makes everything more appealing.

    Unless its salary.

    I guess the summers over?

    1. Possibly, but this was a pretty special arrangement. It's something I've never done before. Still, a different time, a different place, there will be more fun.

    1. Thank you, Annamaria. Yes, it does seem goodbyes are so often bittersweet. But now we'll have memories.

  6. Your photograph looks like an old Dutch painting Denise. The lights and darks create such a mood of longing and love.

  8. So pretty. What time of day did the light fall so gracefully over your table? Were you reading or eating or just passing by?

    1. I'm trying to recall the time of day, Beth. I believe it was late afternoon. My camera records inaccurately and I haven't taken the time to try and fix this issue. I was walking past the table and had to stop and find my camera. One of my favorite types of moments.

  11. I thought Flemish too... painterly image, both the photograph and the goodbye. Sometimes knowing we can't return to a place makes it even sweeter and richer in memory. It's happened to me, just recently...
