I uploaded lots of wise books on my e-book (A dear gift from my daddy -- I adore shopping with my dadd - not because of the things -- because I always love to be with him) and I'm keen to read all them all. I love reading outside - but if I accidentally have my sketchbook in my bag, it's not reading anymore -- it always turns to drawing.
A small courtyard in the cross of two streets that I LOVE! (пересечение Канонерской с Прядильным) -- I passed it running but decided to take a stop and read a chapter -- finally I made a sketch.
(I've been so taken with this old tender corner) -- (well, it happens here surely-usually- routinely)
It's a park of Conservatory. The same story -- I plan to read 10 pages of 'Il peccato di Loretta" , BUT....
You see?? I'll remain stupid, ignorant and benighted because of my sketchbook!
