  1. The first image was so captivating…I almost forgot to scroll down. Then, of course, came the great poetry which set it all in motion. Beautiful post, and the eggplant dish looks like a piece of art itself…lucky is the person who tastes this sweet & spicy dish.

    • Thank you, I really thank you.

      Ralph Waldo Emerson once asked what we would do if the stars only came out once every thousand years. No one would sleep that night, of course. The world would create new religions overnight. We would be ecstatic, delirious, Instead, the stars come out every night and we watch television….
      I was doing just the same..or nearly the same (as I never watch television) for so many years.
      It’s my turn to be ecstatic & delirious (smiling)…. It’s my turn to make the eggplants become poetry.
      Ok, I’m tired again (had my Carsoli day)…but never stop my feelings flowing down in rivers. Especially today. By the way: the taste was great! Not the usual baba ghanoush recipe!

      • Great quote by Emerson…so accurate. Especially how everyone turns to TV at night. It is your turn, and enjoy it all you can 🙂 Rest well and have beautiful dreams.

  2. Delicate photos. The blossoms are so softly photographed, that it’s really divine. And the food looks very tempting. And says me who isn’t a fan of egg plants. 😉 Have a happy day!

    • My dear, dear Bridget! I was missing you! I will write you later – meanwhile I thank you very much for visiting…( I’m rushing as I wish I could enter Ninfa reserve today…wonderful weather here…Spring is making me ….bloooooom….(smiling)…

      love & all the best
