winter days

home

the best place to be in winter is home. it's still white out there. and icy, which brought the city almost to a stand-still this morning. i'm glad i can concentrate on my translations, at the moment i'm looking at the most beautiful renaissance paintings and drawings. i'm also fascinated by the historical background of the italian courts in the early 15th century, which sometimes reads like a unputdownable novel.

hope you are all well. what are your days looking like?

p.s.: apologies for the delay, but i've finally drawn a winner to my giveaway post in december. and because i felt like it, i drew a second winner too. tschitschi and P.K., you've both won a 13 x 18 cm print of your choice - please email me (see my profile to the right) to let me know your pick and address!

Our days have been so grey, but the sun appeared this afternoon and my eyes nearly melted with the shock!
Hope your Dad is doing well x

mmm, white and icy. i kind of miss that. not sure 10 days in denmark was enough to fill my winter crave. but i'm ambivalent. i like the warmer weather here too. even if it did rain the last few days. happy new years to you and yours. and well wishes to your father. xox
