Here by Glimpses Known



Mtsamboro, the third largest island in the lagoon, as seen from the southwest. The island has neither running water nor electricity, so there are only a few huts on it, mostly farmers who pass their time cultivating bananas and citrus fruits, namely tangerines, oranges, and grapefruits.

"People travel to wonder at the height of the mountains, at the huge waves of the seas, at the long course of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars, and yet they pass by themselves without wondering." St. Augustine, 354 430

I'll tell Julien you liked it. And yes, I've been wanting to use that quote; I think it is a lovely reminder that we all need a little introspection from time to time, if even only to wonder at the complexity of being human.

He's a fine photographer, your beloved.

Does he sell prints? He should!

That's what I've told him, but he doesn't think he's got what it takes.

Well, you're just going to have to hijack them, make them into a best-selling print run (plus merchandising - cards, calendars, address book covers) and show him how it's done.

In between writing your best-seller and doing your own artwork, of course. Oh, and selling your jewellery. I'm sure you can do it.
