As I’m getting ready for my trip, everything Paris related catches my eye. I spotted this today in the flickr photostream of UK artist Fiona Watson, who goes by the name Wild Goose Chase on the photo sharing site. Her collages are extraordinary. In this one she includes a French postcard. She translates the inscription this way:
“How much I would like to find myself next to you this morning, to take your head in my two hands with eager tenderness and a fever of caresses.”
The postmark is 1917- sent during World War I

I wonder if he made it home back to her?

    You have a great blog here. I like reading unique blogs like yours. I have a site myself which provides information on popular vacation destinations. I want my site to be a place where anyone from around the world can come and have that vacation spirit or "vacation feeling" as you can tell from my domain name.

    I'd like to exchange links with you to help spread some traffic around between each other. Please let me know if this is possible.

    I believe he found his way back because a man would crawl through fire to be with a woman with such feelings.

    I really love the berries. I think that three dimensional objects lend such texture to collages. Love it.
