I've got (real) mail

As seen on @BiblioConnection this morning:

“Letter writing is the only device combining solitude with good company.”
—George Gordon Byron

I was ever so pleased that a postcard of Monet's Red Poppies at Argenteuil that I sent to Katrin inspired the colours for her personally illustrated reply. Seems she has had quite the connection with the artwork actually—dit is maar bitter toevallig! Ek het nie geweet nie. :)

I recommend checking out her site, as linked above, as well as her most recent blog post on this year's Bologna Children's Book Fair. I've got the tab open in my browser and I'll be doing some link-clicking later!

I also intend to play catch-up with the remaining pictures of our own trip to Italy, but for the moment I'm concentrating on cramming some German before my online course ends in a few days.
