Thanks Sacha, I read it, and I indeed saw Holland in my mind...

Memory of Holland
Thinking of Holland
I picture broad rivers
meandering through
unending lowland:
rows of incredibly
lanky poplars, huge
plumes that linger
at the edge of the world;
in the astounding
distance small-holdings
that recede into space
throughout the country;
clumps of trees, town-lands,
stumpy towers, churches
and elms that contribute
to the grand design;
a low sky, and the sun
smothering slowly in mists, pearl-gray,
mother-of-pearl;
and in every county
the water 's warning
of more catastrophes
heard and heeded.

Well Laura, there is a challenge to create a drawing! Very Happy

Could be.....lemme think about such a tale. (We're Dutch and not that much into national heroism)

OK, read this and then we'll talk: http://spiritromanesc.go.ro/Miorita%20-eng.html

This is about as far away from heroism as it gets. I'm surprised that's such a good translation of it though.

Well, it is, but it's completely nonsensical.

If I was given advance warning that someone was going to kill me, I'd be all, 'OK, let me get my guns' not 'Tell my mom I died and it looked like a wedding.' Rolling Eyes

I thought it was totally nonsensical ever since I was six years old and we read this at school. I still do.

A stupid comic I drew after watching X-Men First Class with my brother:



He tells me I had that approximate expression plastered on my face for half the film. I didn't even realize.

Also, that is a very accurate summary of the plot, I promise.

So did I. I liked it worryingly much, considering I don't really like superhero films.

You should. It's a good movie with a pretty sweet cast.

I was inspired by our wedding card of Salvador Dali,



and I created this with several different pictures from the internet, the waterfall is totally created by me, which was quite hard to do:
