(click on image).
Just finished to read "Il Sonaglio", the last novel of Camilleri's
metamorphosis trilogy and I'm even more impressed than I was
by the talent of the writer and the humour and thoughtfulness
of the man.
The Camilleri language.
and a glimpse to Sicily's history-geography-society.

I was seeking a new specs' frame, because I've lost mine at my granny's, so I wandered
around Châtelet and the Latin quarter, from an optician to the next one, shooting all around
me - like a tourist...
... but I finally found what I was searching for !

The pigeons arrived in my granny's village sometime in the eighties.
Nowadays I think there are more pigeons than sheeps, cows and goats all together
and they breed faster than flying rabbits !
I discovered these two chicks in the old granite house's balcony, while doing
the yearly clean up routine - checking the windows still close and fighting back
the ivy which obstinately tries to sneak inside.
I think they were less than one week old.
Three days later, some grey feathers mixed up to the previous yellow...
Last time I went to check their growth, six days later, eyes were wide open and
size had doubled. Good luck chicks !
