Impressions V

Yesterday I went with my dear friends to a wonderful tea shop.
I had wanted to go there for a while now since it is the place from where all the unexpected tea blends around my city come from. This place smells like a close drawer full of stories.
Here I am sharing with you the tea I chose: the Blue Lady
it has a serene fruity scent and a passionate flavour, like a long expected sunny day 
It is a Ceylan black, blended with petals of safflower, blue corn flowers and yellow sunflowers.
I also tried my friends' tea choices (we always try eachother's food, they are that amazing) and they all were beautiful. Not to mention the freshmade fruit scones with cream and marmalade.
I can't wait to go back!
I am going to take this postt as a chance to share something I should have posted a while ago as a thank you to the person who gave it to me. This is a picture of the first rose I got from the sun light rose bush I got from my sister when I moved in my house.
it has that  shade oflight yellow that seems to glow under soft light

I take the chance to mention that I have been drawing again out of pure delight. Maybe some of the sketechs will make it here.
Take care,

You, you alone will have stars as no one else has them...

The Little Prince is turning 70 and, even if I am still deprived of all my drawing tools and in the middle of writing some essays, I didn’t wanted to let it go without posting something. It is a very special book to me.

a vast expanse of darkness
To avoid misunderstandings, allow me to point out that this is not a quote from the book but from something I wrote. There is a quote of the book in the background though, one that always make me tremble:

“All men have stars, but they are not the same things for different people ... But all these stars are silent.
You-You alone will have stars as no one else has them...
In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And so it will be as if all the stars will be laughing when you look at the sky at night.
You, only you, will have stars that can laugh! And when your sorrow is comforted (time soothes all sorrows) you will be content that you have known me... You will always be my friend. You will want to laugh with me. And you will sometimes open your window, so, for that pleasure...
It will be as if, in place of the stars, I had given you a great number of little bells that knew how to laugh”

My Little Prince entries in this blog:
The  rose garden.
A sky with no starts.
A song in a letter.

Until next time,
