The test of literature is, I suppose, whether we ourselves live more intensely for the reading of it. --Elizabeth Drew


Books, the children of the brain. --Jonathan Swift

Nice concept :D. I think posters like this would be way more effective than a photo of a semi-illiterate pro athlete holding a Dr. Seuss book (don't get me wrong though, Dr. Seuss rocks)

From an avid reader...I must say this is quite lovely. It would make a great cover for a book. Who's the little girl? :+fav:

Oh, she's cute. No, I never noticed the lack of tan. (I'm white as a sheet...I don't tan, so I never really notice pale people) :giggle:

Oh, thank you. You say such nice things! Quite a lift for me. I have to say Sandi that I'd just as soon stop having so many puddles and storms to photograph. I'm ready for some nice hot boring swimming days. :) Hope all is well with you.

LOL I hear ya - we had a real brute of a storm a few weeks back - knocked an enormous branch of a tree by my parents place - just a few more feet out and it would've tore into their roof :faint:. The weather has been REALLY odd - one day it's so hot I can barely breath - and now (like today) it feels like autumn :confused:...I'd just like it to stay the same for a week so I can catch up on my sleep and deal with the rabid seasonal allergies :lmao:!

:hug:
and for the record - I totally suck at taking nature photos of any kind - whenever I have shot waterscapes they turn out a high key distorted mess LOL!

Yeppers. The ship is meant to be a Lilliputian ship, not a toy, although the source photo is a model ship. Now you know how to answer your own question, son, and you should know who Jonathan Swift is anyway. But we'll be reading GULLIVER'S TRAVELS this year in school, so if you don't know now, you will.

I know Gulliver's first name was named after one of the sons of Lehi in the Book of Mormon.
