Dear Sisters,

Here I am enjoying the silence of Normandy with our father.

We have enjoyed watching landings on the moon and some old 1940s black and white Powell & Pressburger films (all very dramatic, yet filled with optimism) and enjoyed commenting on the regional accents, or what posed as such. We have seen a blazing sunset, om U tegen te zeggen almost as blazing as the rockets blasting into space... As often, we have sunshine and wind and rain in fairly equal portions, cats flaked out on the beds all day long, and some experimentation in cooking. The father is a willing guinea pig and has been very polite about it. Here is a beautiful link he showed me, which I have decided to share with you all. No post-production, thousands of negatives were used. An old Olympus advert.
