More orchids

More orchids from the orchid festival.







There are lots of old books to read, all different from each other. I started The Four Seasons by Laurel Corona, a "novel of Vivaldi's Venice". I'm reading also The Magic Doe (Mirigavati), a new translation by Aditya Behl. Mirigavati or The Magic Doe is "the work of Shaikh Qutban Suhravardi, an Indian Sufi master." And a non-fiction-Incognito by David Eagleman. Eagleman writes: "Ours is an incredible story. As far as anyone can tell, we're the only system on the planet so complex that we've thrown ourselves headlong into the game of deciphering our own programming language… What is Experience really like?"

Hello, thanks for visiting me so I could find your blog! Really like the picture of you taking photos of the rocks. With the flowers I love the purple variety. I enjoy reading as well and miss having lots of books on the go - maybe one day!
