Winter in Hollywood (Florida)

056-480x640

Dreaming about Hollywood

It’s very good today to be in a warm apartment and to dream about Hollywood (Florida).

Everything is bright in the future!

Just look at the picture below.

Would you like one of the houses on it with a pool and palms?

Do you like speed?

Use any of the boats..

Please also remember that a beach is waiting for you.

Now close your eyes and dream.

You can add whatever else you want to the dream.

It’s all yours, nobody can take it from you!

Enjoy!

Long-term nostalgia

NOSTALGIA

I am 82. My childhood was very short due to the war.

That’s why it is long-term nostalgia.

Love and optimism

OPTIMISTIC

Love to children always helped me to stay optimistic.

Add to it a memory of a warm sunny beach and I feel very good despite cold and nasty wind at the moment.

Then we’ll have a hearty breakfast with some laughs.

Can you drink some wine in the morning?

Oh, it’s a pity! What about cognac?

Are you sure?

Ok, ok!

Let’s go to the beach and pick up our spots in the shadows of palms.

Do you prefer a place closer to water?

We can have it too.

Did you remember to take sunscreen? Use it now. We must be careful!

Please tell me when you are ready to swim. The water is perfect!

I hope you feel warmth. I hope you are not alone any more.

Don’t you ever forget!

We love you!

Very far and very close

I was doing my daily exercise on the deck when I noticed them.

Big guys were walking slowly but she was running behind them.

When I was ready to make a shot they were far away from me.

However, the scene was very close to my heart.

Hope you’ll like it.
