1. I was so inspired, that I created a book card
2. Inspired by a Book: Something in the Air / Marie Landry
3. and our Slovenian Poet: Nekaj je v zraku - Something is in the air / Tone Pavček - Tone Pavcek

 And for goodbye Jana has added this (thanks Jana, we will miss you!):

There is something in the air. 
Beautiful. Subtle. 
Passing through.

Sensed. Suspected.
As breathtaking and shudder.
As a murmur and whisper in the last minute.

There is something in the air, 
which reflects in the eyes, 
which resonates in people 
at every step of the way.

Is this the secret inspiration for the song? 
Or love? 
Her breath and sigh?


 Inspired by a book: Georgette Heyer These Old Shades

(using 'Abi Ballerina' by All Dressed Up!)
Inspired by the Book - The Red Shoes 

(using 'Pizza Chef' by The Paper Shelter)
