A little note for fun...

- The house next to yours looks like a real watchtower; every time I come to see you, the corner of a curtain lifts up!
- Ah, yes, itís my neighbor! She is rather old, and does not often go out. Then, she likes to observe all what takes place on the square, who comes in, who goes out, who goes to the butcher's...
- What an odd curiosity! It must be annoying to the inhabitants.
- We are used to it; for such a long time...
- What on earth can she do with such observations?
- I imagine that she talks about them to her friends, the ones who are not happy enough to live in a place where a crowd of people passes by, like here.
- She must really have nothing to do... What does she meddle in?
- And your journey in China, how was it?
- Perfect! I observed people, their customs, their activities, it was absolutely fascinating!
- Does your book come out soon?
- I have still to review my notes of the journey. I hope the public will like it!
- No shadow of a doubt! You have already published other novels of the same kind with a complete success.

THE THINGS WHICH THEY CANNOT
SECRETLY OBTAIN FROM GOD

THE SAGE TRUSTS TO NATURE
