Time to Fly

Otto Nielsen was a Danish painter and watercolorist who worked as an illustrator for books, magazines and posters.
From 1954 to 1976 he also produced a series of beautiful travel posters and calendars for Scandinavian Airlines System,
a company founded in 1946 with the merge of four Scandinavian companies from Sweden, Norway and Denmark. 
Its first destination was New York, then Bangkok and Buenos Aires, and in 1954 
SAS became the first airline to operate a trans-polar route.

A Woman's Work

Beatrix Potter

Dear followers, I apologize once again for the recent lack of posts,
but this semester I taught one more course that usual, and soon realized
that I had to give up some of my leisurely activities, including blogging, 
to be able to stay on track keep focused. My lessons ended yesterday, 
and I am really looking forward to almost a full month of vacation.
Of course, now there's plenty to do around the house...
