I like you recently uploaded photos in blue, red, yellow/white and green.

It seems a dark dragon is swallowing the moon.

Best regards, Jeff

Thank you very much Amelia, and I'll keep trying to get more shots like this for you.

Dear Simona and Jeff,

It is lovely to receive your visit and your nice comments but better still I like your creative thoughts on this.

It is special the way simplicity can allow us to imagine different associations.

My best regards to you both,


Ian Stehbens on January 8, 2009

Dear GGR,

Your sweet comment is special too.

Please visit it.

Thanks for the invitation and concern, Jeff. While I understand the anger, it is imperative to process our anger in order to mitigate the animosity and find a common identity on which to create a just and lasting peace. Somewhere in all this there must emerge a moral imagination!

I like the shot and the title ! Sometimes the moon likes being protected, and then it skips into branches. Lavieorange.

Ian Stehbens on January 12, 2009

Dear Lavieorange,

Each time I see this picture, it seems as if I have momentarily held the moon in my hand. Beautiful things need protection.

Finally got some time to at least see your recent pictures here. We arrived in Brazil on last thursday and, unfortunately, we left old tassie to another opportunity (our money was going away fast as a bullet). It´s very good to be among our family and friends again. However, the storms are causing lots of destruction and fears again in our region. But we will rebuild it, I can guarantee.

Hope to upload some pictures of our trip til the weekend. Miss you and Margareth, my friend. Be good.

Dear Leo and Caroline,

Margaret and I have been following your progress, with ongoing comments like they will soon be taking off, or they are somewhere above the Pacific right now, and then they will be back home now! Thanks for making the connection in the first place and for sharing some of your lives with us in Sydney, and with me in Brisbane. Glad we went to the New Farm Powerhouse together, saw the lights of Brisbane from Mt Coot-tha, and explored my favourite Undercliff Track together.

I too will upload some of our common photos so that both websites share and link our time together. You must now remember to tell us about your wedding celebrations in Blumental when that happens. Be sure.

Sorry to hear that you have had some wild weather there.

May this photo remind you in a poetic way of the precious but brief time we spent together. It is like we have been able to touch each others lives briefly, but significantly. And thank you.
