      Danke dir, es freut mich, dass euch mein Blog gefällt. Ich freu mich, dass die Gäste dort bunter und abwechslungsreicher geworden sind😉

      Dir und Klausbernd, Siri und Selma wünsche ich angenehme freie Tage, mit oder ohne Ostereier, ganz wie es euch gefällt🙂.

  2. Really beautiful quote and photo! I just finished reading a novel “The Neruda Case” by Roberto Ampuero – I think you would enjoy it. The dying poet is a central character – a kind of mystery/detective story.

    • Thank a lot for this fine recommendation, Emma – I have ordered the book and am very much looking forward to reading it.:-)
      I love the eloquently spohisticated poetry of Pablo Neruda. His poems are beautifully written, filled with metaphors and symbols and an incredible word choice that leaves me and many others breathless and left him with the Nobel Prize.
      Have you seen the film “Il postino?” I can strongly recommend it.. a gem.

      Happy Easter, all the best
      Dina

  4. Reblogged this on Petchary's Blog und kommentierte:
    In Jamaica we don’t have spring. I miss the changing seasons. It is very warm and Kingston’s drought still hasn’t broken. But I thought I would share this beautiful photograph and quote for Good Friday evening, for a little freshness and beauty. I just finished reading “The Neruda Case,” a delightful novel by Roberto Ampuero in which the poet plays a pivotal role. My review of the book is coming up shortly…

    • Wie schön, Ute! Ich kann mich immer wieder ans seine Gedichte erfreuen. Hst du den Film “Il postino” gesehen? Der ist ein Traum, ein muss für jeden Nerudafan.
      Jetzt ist Ostern bald um. Ich arbeit zurzeit nachts und bekomme gar nicht viel mit.🙂
      Eine gute neue Woche wünsche ich uns.

  6. Dear Dina,
    As usual, your posts brilliantly marry great photography with timeless quotes. So very elegantly and eloquently done, showing us all how less is way more when you master the art to combine the perfect ingredients in a two-line post.
    I bow to your mastery.
    Happy Easter to you and Klausbernd!

    • Oh Dina, thank you so much! But you are way too kind: mine were only factual observations of your mastery – it is you that should be complimented!🙂
      Hope you and Klausbernd enjoyed Easter as well – we have been laying low, taking it easy!
      Be well!

  9. Richtig feine Verbindung von Zitat und Text. Wie poetisch …
    Du musst ja einen enormen Speicher für Zitate haben. Toll finden wir, dass du nicht so 08/15-Zitate bringst, die man im Netz allerorten liest.
    Ganz liebe Grüße aus dem sonnig warmen Cley
    Klausbernd und die munteren Buchfeen Siri & Selma xxx

  11. I’ve read that poem by Neruda just last week in Spanish and today I took a picture of a snail house very similar to this one🙂. Life is good, isn’t it, Dina?
