    I am usually quite pedantic about everything being ‘squared’ up and symmetrical, but this works so well.
    That background is wonderful!

  • background is just a dirty wall… but dirty walls have much to say ;-)
    Merci Denis

    … je ne connaissais pas cette superbe citation de Cocteau…mais je dois être comme le phoenix qui renait de ses cendres après avoir été consumé :-))
    … et j’aime la théatralité de cette image !

  • je l’ai extraite d’un documentaire, je te l’envoie …..
    cette phrase de lui m’a profondément touchée, parceque c’est mon sentiment, vraiment

    i know you don’t always suffer the use of this word and i must insist that i never use it without thought and decision…but i must use it here and now….“perfect” (and after all i am allowed my opinion…no?) :)….interestingly the title does as it calls….its ‘inspiring’

  • I think I’ll try (but will I dare really) to post a very uggly stuff
    and hope that day you’ll say
    “uggly” !!!!!!!!!!
    but you might say “perfect in its ugliness” ;-))))

    “inspiring” coming from you my dear is the best compliment I could read…….
