  2. Such a great combination of art and quote. In a picture like that, we can easily lose all sense of time.

    Thanks for visiting my TTT this week which is all about readers.

  9. Such a great quote and books can really do that, transport us to another world so we forget our worries for a bit.

  12. This is a beautiful painting. I had not seen it before. I looked it up and date is circa 1923. Interesting.
