Hi Ted mon ami,

When I've opened my e-mail and read your message, I sincerely ask my  
self , what can I say in response to these kind words .... Simply, say  
you thank you very much for everyone of your words and my inmense  
gratitude for your help and wishes to have recognition, this is very  
kind, and still more comming from you; I've never received such words  
and I'm really honored and happy for your friendship and words just  
comming from you. IMO the real only thing we can be happy is that some  
of our work can be diffused and also know by the future generations to  
give them some heritage of our way of life, the photography help  to  
show to the others our vision of the world.

Thank you very much my friend, thanks Dr. Ted!
