be patient :)

... but I AM convinced there is change in the air everywhere.
The leaves of the trees are falling in the Northern Hemnisphere,
as are some other things, like dominos.
Let's find some rakes - it is clean up time, before anything new can grow.
Next Spring will be fertile.

As Herman Hesse said:

Wie jede Blüte welkt und jede Jugend
Dem Alter weicht, blüht jede Lebensstufe,
Blüht jede Weisheit auch und jede Tugend
Zu ihrer Zeit und darf nicht ewig dauern.
Es muß das Herz bei jedem Lebensrufe
Bereit zum Abschied sein und Neubeginne,
Um sich in Tapferkeit und ohne Trauern
In andre, neue Bindungen zu geben.
Und jedem Anfang wohnt ein Zauber inne,
Der uns beschützt und der uns hilft, zu leben.

I absolutely love that poem.

Next Spring

Spring is a babbling brook
Through seasons of rain
Melody sublime

I didn't know that one Bettina - beautiful!

First the Banks will fly, thereafter we burry them with cow-dung. Maype then money will grow, Granny Fiddler. (this response could be transformed into a haiku perhaps...)

You have spring down there Lindsay - lucky goose!
