We take shelter in the same roof

Under the same arched skies.

  1. jeques,

    you travel and you have embraced the sunshine that abides with you wherever you go. to see the wide sky once a while, widens the heart, and keeps us to think that those little cares in that big city is nothing compared to the vastness of heavens above our heads, before our eyes.

    what a joy to see you, your kindred spirit taking flight to faraway places like a free bird. to mingle with people whose great gift is their smile. whose hospitality never wanes as the sun go down. people who are unpretentious to keep you company. such is a wonderful travel indeed. the lighthouse and the boat-like the one i have seen in your painting reminiscent of it. ah, that little tyke in you seems satisfied and able to touch the rreality beyond the canvas.

    i can see the imaginary tyke walking around with you gleefully as it clasped with your hands in his fragility. absolutely wonderful time to be one with yourself again.

    best of times,

  2. (From 18th century war onwards, no photos appeared! That means I only saw the 26 before that! I tried refreshing, but the same thing happened! Don’t think my PC liked so many to upload!)

    You seem to be enjoying your journey. Each photo seems to be a symbol of happiness! Keep o n travelling on this road!

  3. What a wonderful post Jeques! You looked so happy, so peaceful in these pics. I feel renewed just going through each photo, imagining your day. I am so glad I stopped in. You’ve brought sunshine to my so far rather dreary day.

    Many hugs, G
