I have something to propose to you loyal and dedicated fans.
I live in Switzerland where nothing is ever more than 3 hours away since it is a tiny country
Next Wednesday I am going to spend a few days in the Ticino with my best friend. More precisely in Tegna and surroundings. We are going to see Patricia Highsmith's house and stop by the local cemetery. We are going to leave flowers or a note or something... as a way of thanking her for her work. And since I am sure there are many more here on this forum today whose lives have been affected and changed by her work I propose to leave a flower for each person who would like to participate. Or a written note. Or plant a tree with all of your initals ? Anyway I am open to propositions or to all of your craziest requests We are spending 3 days there so plenty of time. If you would like to be part of it message me with your request or just post on this thread. I'll post a list of people next tuesday the 14th to make sure I haven't forgotten anyone. Let me know ! Have a great day !
so here is a link to the online blog where we basically dropped the photos, it's not organized yet the order doesn't make sense, but you can click on the photos and get a good sense of the village and surroundings, they were all taken in tegna and ponte brolla which is basically the same thing. it's quite a lovely place ! we'll replace them in the right order sometime this week
Really neat to see where Patricia Highsmith spent the final chapter of her life in Switzerland. THANKS SO MUCH for sharing. Is that the same house she designed the architecture (w/ a heap of pride) herself as discussed in the book of..."Highsmith: A Romance of the 1950's" wrote by Marijane Meaker? I thought it would be very angular and minimalistic industrial design, incorporating mid-century style.
sohappy: thanks Mortimer for clearing the spam. Much needed.

sohappy: Mortimer two spammers have posted over 1000 posts - rebecca and josephgreen - can we have all of those 1000+ posts deleted by banning these members?

Mortimer: Sohappy, don't worry. I already banned these two and everyone else who is recently registered only to post spams got the same fate. I'll check this place twice a day just to be sure everything is Ok.
