Fantasy & Reality

After 20+ years of living in this neighborhood, I have come to less than affectionately call it "my cage". Whenever I start feeling this way I take a short trip in my mind to other parts of the world. "Fantasy & Reality" will be the theme of this book. Marina, it's on its way to you. Hope you had a festive Yom Atzmaut (Israel Independence Day, 60th Anniversary).

I am looking through your Paris drawings right now. Yofi.

My family went to France and Italy for two weeks 12 years ago. It was a very memorable trip. We stayed in Antibe, Paris, Florence and Venice. My kids were 10 and 8 yrs old. Unforgetable. I loved Florence. That's where I want to be. Next fantasy drawing.

A few years later the flights to Paris were only $250, but couldn't leave because Vic teaches. I wanted to go for a long weekend and just walk eat , drink and see the 17th & 18th century French painting galleries at the Louvre. They were closed when we were last there. I pouted for three days.

Kfir, a fellow at work, will translate all of your drawings for me.
