  23. Estimado Ruma, estos días parece que estan realizando pruebas en el servidor Google, y han aparecido muchas cosas raras, entre ellas mis 2 blogs aparecían como "eliminados" despues de varios intentos logre entrar en mi blog pero posteriormente vi con sorpresa y decepcion que se habian borrado muchos enlaces de blogs que seguia, entre ellos el tuyo, lo comunique a Google pero aun no me han respondido, no me queda mas remedio que ir detectando los que se borraron y volver a seguirlos,
    disculpa la molestia.
    que tengas una feliz semana.
    un abrazo.

  45. Hi, I borrowed your photo and wrote about your blog here. Hope you don't mind.

  46. Ruma, I remember this holiday from your last year post and find it very special to celebrate children this way. To pray for their health and peace. I notice too your calligraphy post below is of the word joy and what better word for what children are. It must be joyous for children of all ages to see all the beautiful displays of paper fish flying over the spring landscapes. Lovely and endearing. Carol
