Il m'a dit: "Cette nuit, j'ai rêvé.
J'avais ta chevelure autour de mon cou.
J'avais tes cheveux comme un collier noir
Autour de ma nuque et sur ma poitrine.

Je les caressais, et c'étaient les miens;
Et nous étions liés pour toujours ainsi,
Par la même chevelure, la bouche sur la bouche,
Ainsi que deux lauriers n'ont souvent qu'une racine.

Et peu à peu, il m'a semblé.
Tant nos membres étaient confondus,
Que je devenais toi-même,
Ou que tu entrais en moi comme mon songe."

Quand il eut achevé,
Il mit doucement ses mains sur mes épaules,
Et il me regarda d'un regard si tendre,
Que je baissai les yeux avec un frisson.

    "Selva and her photos are incredibly inspiring. I love the way her photographs speak to me, the vividness of each picture, and the angles she finds to look at things. She makes even the ordinary look beautiful."

    "Selva is the sort of thing you can put on a list. This list should have her name on the top and a lot of lines below it, all filled with things that are good about Selva."

    "Selva can pretty much do it all, I believe.

    She takes some of the best macro shots around. Her architectural and building captures are exceptional. Her portraits are warm and alive. And her fine art sketches (or "doodles" as she calls them) are truly magical and lovely.

    Take a moment and enjoy her wonderful photostream."

    "Along with taking some of the most intriguing and beautiful photographs on Flickr she always has time to look at others' work, and let them know she appreciates it. Not an easy feat with almost 500 contacts, I'm sure (-;"

    "I'd need a thesaurus to adequately describe selva's photos. She consistently surprises and entertains me with her photography and in flickr with the wealth of good photographers around, that is no easy thing to do. She is also the creator of the liquid light tag! :-)

    Don't let anyone know this, but selva was also my secret GNE crush! ;)"

    "Selva is a wonderful person. That might be taken incorrectly to be generic, poorly formed praise, but it isn't. There's a whole, fantastic person to Selva, a gestalt of wonderfulness. If you know her, you know how right I am."

    "Selva is one of the most talented artists and designers I know who is the most humble about it. Plus, who better to ask when you want to find the widest selection of Dolfin chocolates? Find the best Korean food in Seattle? Hear a fantastic impersonation of the blue-haired 20X6 anime kid? Selva, I'm going to miss you..."

    "Saint Selva of the Holy Absinthe is hands down the finest deity I've ever dedicated my online soul to. She's got style to spare, neverending wit and a fantastic sense of fun. She makes converting people to the way of the Fairy not only a pleasure, but amazingly easy. No one expects the Absinthe Inquisition!"
