Ain't this cool?

A couple of days ago, I've been contacted through a FlickrMail by someone working in Argentina for a big publishing company called Grupo Santillana. She saw my Flickr photostream, and was then requesting some approval re the use of one of my photos to illustrate a chapter in a Mathematics book. Ain't this cool?

Alas, it's now over :( ! Her editor finally chose to use some drawings instead because he wanted to keep some sort of consistency between chapters—and I only got two variations to offer. Here's what the 2nd option looks like:

Even if I do understand his choice, it's just too bad 'cause this would have been huge. (One of my photos… In a Mathematics book!!!) But it's still great to have been preselected, isn't it? So let's be prepared for the next opportunity. Anyone ;) ?

I still can't realize it's true! (Part 1)

As always, it takes me some time to blog about something. Sorry about that, but real-time posting is not available for me yet ;) ! But I'd really like to take some time now to tell you how much I'm happy since I saw it again, many, many years later. 'Cause now it's real, confirmed, verified, finalised.

I may have said to some of you that "something", something huge was going to happen. I didn't want to give any detail before it was here; hence the mystery surrounding this topic. But now, it's over. Yes, this is for real. Yes, I'm still amazed that it happened. 'Cause yes, it happened: on monday's evening, I've said hello again to an old friend of mine.

I don't have time to tell you more now—it's late… But I'll post "Part 2" soon, I promise. In the meantime, don't expect too much: I know it won't be of any interest to most of you ;) ! I just hope that some will understand my joy :P ! Because I may have made a secret dream come true this past monday.

To be continued…
