Cookies in the rain…


It rains…

But what does it matter!,
if I am here sheltered by this door
listening to the rain that falls from the sky
a silent melody
that no one else listens to
but me?

It rains…

But it is the fate
of those who love
to hear a violin
even in the mud.

José Gomes Ferreira

    The book in the last two photos is very creative. I can easily imagine curling up with a good novel with one of these cookies in hand.

    Some of my fondest memories of childhood are eating cookies piped with a star tip just like that. Especially in the rain, it’s wonderful.
