The body is amazing. This morning I cut myself when I was slicing bread. Now I want to rest and my wound is healed.
Thank you for your card. Even though you mailed it 7 months ago, I just got it. The timing was perfect. It arrived on my birthday.
I have been told that people want photographs of people they know, but not of strangers. But it is interesting that people buy paintings of people. Paintings and photographs are very different.
She is sitting between some stones.
Someone is coming over and saying something she can't hear. At first, she just sees his mouth move, red, round, and remarkable, then his voice becomes clearer.
He is saying something about the stones.
It's nice the way the stones lie out here. Many of the stones have been lying under the floor of our house in various places. We moved the floors and when we were digging under the floor, we occasionally came across big stones. They were happy to get up in the air, instead of lying around under the floor.
Under my bedroom floor, there were two stones that we got out and placed in various places in the garden. And then there was this one more stone. It was so big that we couldn't move it out of place, so it's still under my bedroom. It is very special. Under your bedroom.
Siri’s mouth is a lot smaller now and can only accommodate little messages. I guess that's ok. Sister Siri is a machine elf, and please pardon the mistakes.
The beach will be there, the sand and water, and see girls will wait for us.

Duration 4-9/11: Sat-Sun 15h-20h, Mon-Wed 18h-21h
