Do places like this actually exist in this world?

Good point.

A fellow editor! Although I work with the language mostly in translations, I do a fair amount of editing as well. Curiously, I see words as PICTURES. For example, if on page 5 I see the word Udagamandalam (something I have never seen before), I don’t even try to actively remember it as a word. Then I come across Udagamamdalam on page 48 and my brain registers it as a different picture, but clearly trying to be the same as the one on page 5. I go back to page 5 and, sure enough, the word is different there. Then I just have to determine which one is correct. The one on page 5 is. Have you ever analysed how your brain sees or registers the words? This interests me greatly. (Udagamandalam is a town in India)

...or a letter substitute: I noticed that in my Florence yarn I wrote descendent when it should have been descendant. There's a wee bit of a difference between the two. ;-)

I happen to be an editor, and for some reason, I actually do see every letter in each word. That is how I catch typos and misspellings in text. I'm not perfect myself though, so please don't expect me to be here. ;)

Yes, but remember...sometimes the placement of a single letter can make a great deal of difference in the meaning of a word..martial law and marital law, for example.

That is cool the way the brain works!

Ooops, I meant splendid, should have proof read this before posting I guess.

LOL, Perhaps a little. Believe it or not I actually thought about commenting on this earlier but I got into something else. Then I went back to check the recent comments and read your comment about my pic then scrolled down a little and voila there was this pic and so I thougt this would be a spledid time to comment on it!

Thanks, Kevin! Are we playing tit for tat? ;-)

Great pic! I like the way the building frames the impressive view.

...yes! With photoshopping, one could make this look like a painting, but it could never match a Parrish. ;-)

Looks like Maxfield Parrish.
