92. Hans Christian Andersen

Today is the 205th birthday of Hans Christian Andersen/ which was/is one of my favorite writters of all time. When I was a kid I used to listen and to read his stories, and even today If I find any of those I read them over again. The stories are for children, but I’m sure many adults should read them again to understand their lives because they teach us a lot.
One of my favorites from all the time was the ugly duckling.

Due the lack of messages I’ve been receiving I’ll tell that I’m in a Photoblog break, not because I’m bored or something but because I need time to let my mind open a bit more and exams are coming so I’ll be not posting so fluently. Although I am willing to visit your posts whenever I can because I usually get bored at night [I can’t study at me headaches] so your photos help me to leave the stress.. I’ll be posting once in a while. Thank you for your posts.
????? Hi Ricky: Really interesting shot. I find it hard too to keep up with everyone's comments and with limited time there's only so much you can do.

DancingDolphin Hey good luck with your exams.

I think ALL good children's books are meant for adults as well. I have a HUGE collection, probably 100+ , I still buy them, and my kids are long gone! :-)

Unchained Espero que os exames tenham corrido bem, eu já disse que fico admirada como faz malabarismo com o tempo. H.C. Andersen, um autor que me acompanhou também durante a minha infância e do qual não se esquece.
Boa foto e muito adequada.
