Oh, thank you so much! *happydances*

I definitely recommend Thiodolf and all things Fouqué. (I am biased, because I edited the only scholarly edition of his The Magic Ring in English, but hey, I'm also a genuine fan!)

Aren't they lovely? I feel privileged just to hold them in my hands, you know?

oh, aren't they lovely. There's a feeling they evoke, standing there, ragged and proud, but there isn't even a good word for it. They embrace time, and yet fly in the face of it......

Thanks so much! :)

I got the Olympus Stylus SH-50. It's not all that fancy, but to be honest, I couldn't handle something fancy! I loved my old Olympus, but it's woefully outdated now. Thus far I'm really liking this new one.

Re: foreground and back
Aw, thank you so much! That put a big smile on my face. The woods behind our deck were such a vivid green after several days of rain that it almost blinded you to look at them. Incredible.
