A little note for fun

- Coming back from Salzburg?
- Yes, what a beautiful spot! Seldom have I found a more inspiring one.
- I imagine it is not because of the spot…
- No, of course not. But what a great meeting with this visionary…!
- Yes, I can understand. Mozart…
- Mozart?
- Well, yes…

The Thought of the Day

AFTER THEY HAVE EATEN
THE TEN THOUSAND CREATURES SLEEP

AFTER THEY HAVE SERVED THE PRINCE
THE HUNDRED FAMILIES WAKE UP
