J'adore Magritte. I saw this painting, The Empire of Light, last year in Venice and it was absolutely mesmerizing.

Bonne anniversaire, Rene!

Bonjour Mon Ami.
I'm stopping by to say hello.
I'm starting to come out of the woods and making some visits.
I love the creativity in this blog.
You are an interesting woman. I speak of you in my memoir

Hola yoli,

De Magritte me gusta mucho Le Thérapeuthe, no solo verlo, sino imaginar que cada uno de nosotros guarda algo valioso, aun a pesar de que eso –lo mejor- permanezca adentro.
Si de algo estamos enfermos es de silencio, de callarnos la boca, tomar distancia...
Recuerdo cuando vI ese cuadro por primera vez (Le Thérapeuthe), KANDELAAAA,
cada hombre es una jaula, en la que envejece un sueño, mientras crece, él es más preso.

Bueno, nos pillamos, tony.

My God, completely unrelated to your post! I thought I was the only person on earth who liked Journey. Back in Uni there was a friend of mine who used to lend me Journey's tapes and that's how I got to hear most of their albums.

Steve Perry, one of the better vocalists ever. 'She took the midnight train...'

Oh, I forgot, happy birthday, René!

Greetings from London.
