  1. “Au milieu de l'hiver, j'ai découvert en moi un invincible été.”

     

    (...In the midst of winter, I discovered in me an invincible summer.)

     

     

     

    At some point in life the world's beauty becomes enough. You don't need to photograph, paint or even remember it. It is enough. No record of it needs to be kept and you don't need someone to share it with or tell it to. When that happens — that letting go — you let go because you can.. -Toni Morrison

     

     

     


  2. That Indian Fantail is quite beautiful.

    I love birds. Doves are so soothing.

    My dad got so excited years ago about the idea of rock / homing pigeons. He constructed a large aviary outside with plenty of light and shelter, fun things for them to do. He set them free after a time and was crushed they never came back home.


  3. English, how boring...

     

    Mein Deutsch ist genug, um mich durch zu bekommen. (albeit pretty awful, but I think I know enough German to hold basic conversations, it's probably more accurate to say I am fluent in Rammstein Lyrics, though)

     

    mi español es bastante malo. ._.

     

     

    Is it boring? I've always found it difficult. German is a fine language in that it's so much more logical than English.

     

    French is my first language but I speak English primarily. Also know some Italian and Finnish, a bits of other languages, just bits and phrases.

     

    I love hearing about people studying fantasy languages, and hearing them. Like Na'vi or Sindarin.
