I believe you can fly - Eu acho que você pode voar

First in English:
My love for books began when I was six and mum gave me Alice in Wonderland. I still have
that book and it is magical. I may be wrong but true freedom happens when you can read
and understand the world within and around you. I am going to leave you a quote that is my motto:

“I owe everything I am and everything I will ever be to books.” 
Gary Paulsen

Have a magical day!

floor - Cestrelle, note - Sem fundo.


In Portuguese:

Meu amor pelos livros começou quando eu tinha seis anos e ganhei de minha mãe Alice no País das Maravilhas. Ainda tenho esse livro e é mágico. Posso estar errada mas a verdadeira liberdade acontece quando você pode ler e entender o mundo dentro e fora de você. Vou deixar uma citação que é tudo pra mim:

Devo tudo que sou e tudo que serei aos livros.
Gary Paulsen

Tenha um dia mágico!

  3. I have missed you Karla. Sorry I've been gone so long.

    This is a wonderful artistic entry and a fabulous quote. The woman looks like she fits right in, although she is from another era. Truly lovely and timeless.

  7. I agree, Karla. I was fortunate to have a teacher who ignited a fascination for books, and I read everything I could lay my hands on. Nothing enhances an education more than reading! I love your art too!!!

  8. Magnificent art work Kalka. I too love books. My Mom started to read to me very small also.

    I even got back then a certificate in grade two for the best verbal expressions reader in my class. I got a book given to me called Five Little Puppies. I gave it to my oldest granddaughter who is in University
    to be a teacher . My entry is up.
