With glittering eyes...

And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you 
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. 
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it. 
From The Minpins by Roald Dahl.

We are heading off on vacation. A week at the beach.
Watching Daniel play tennis for the first three days.

Then we will have four days of riding bikes. Staring out at the water. 
Eating well. Sleeping late. Being merry.

Thinking. Unthinking. Rethinking.
Reading. Journaling. Collaging. Coloring with big, fat markers.
 I'll be watching the world with glittering eyes, rekindling my belief in magic.
Buon viaggio a tutti.

What gorgeous pictures! And the giant shoe in the foreground is a hoot. If I had to guess, I'd say the shoe of a boy/young man. But I could be wrong.

Julie, I wish you were right in your assessment of the foot in the foreground. Actually, that is my size 11 foot in the picture. As tough as it is to find comfortable and attractive shoes for them, these huge feet of mine have carried me all over this country, Europe, and several countries in Central and South America.

I pray to have a far more petite size 8 foot in my next life... I am hoping for a radically transformed new body!
