Although it's still Wednesday where I am, it's Thursday 15 March in the wonderful city of Saint Petersburg. And that's where one of the most important people in my life is right now. So, it's her birthday. Happy Birthday Lia, you mean the world to me and your friendship is a treasure beyond measure.
As has been the case for the past few years, the pictures are not mine - oh how I wish they were - and I hope I can be excused for using them here. They are works of art and their subject is simply astonishing.
With all the love I can give.
