Like everyone else
I feel the need of relations and friendship,
of affection, of friendly intercourse,
and I am not made of stone or iron,
so I cannot miss these things without feeling,
as does any other intelligent man,
a void and deep need.
I tell you this to let you know
how much good your visit has done me.
Vincent Van Gogh
From one mad Artist to another....... your friendship is invaluable!
I wish you the Happiest of Birthdays. As you know I am not a writer or poet but I felt that these lines from dear Vincent say more than I can manage. Your friendship has been nothing short of thoughtful, entertaining, educational and some times laugh out loud funny. I am so glad I met you via Andy and although it has not been in person I feel a true friendship has evolved. As I have mentioned before my world would be empty without your wonderful posts.......; )
I have spent the afternoon making a little something in miniature to post for your birthday but sadly by the time I had finished the light had failed and was not worth photographing. I will have to leave it till tomorrow. The image above is from a clip I took this week but sadly it failed to load, it is my local beach where I walk most days and I thought you might enjoy catching a glimpse.
Have a wonderful day David,
Love always, your friend, Fi xx
