Having just returned to my dial-up internet following thunderstorm which took out our phone service from Friday 'til now, (just in time for my-husband-the-physician's weekend of call from home) *sigh, grumble, sigh*, I want to wish a_loquitaand beanpota belated "Very Happy Birthday and Many, Many Returns of the Day!!!" I hope that those in a better position than I to provide you with companionship, feasting and song were unstinting in providing them.

We are very pleased to have phone service back now, slightly less than a day before the phone company's initial estimate for restoration of service, because if any calls come in before 8 a.m. - and they likely will - my husband will no longer have to drive the five miles into town to answer them. We're in a cell phone dead-zone here. It's part of the price we pay for living where other folks vacation.

A Few Words from the Wise

Speak to him, for there is none born wise.

-The Maxims of Ptahotep

~~~~~~~~~~


In mourning or rejoicing, be not far from me.

- an Ancient Egyptian Love Song

~~~~~~~~~~


But your embraces
alone give life to my heart
may Amun give me what I have found
for all eternity.


-Love Songs of the New Kingdom, Song #2

~~~~~~~~~~


To Know the Dark


To go in the dark with a light is to know the light.
To know the dark, go dark. Go without sight,
and find that the dark, too, blooms and sings,
and is travelled by dark feet and dark wings.


-Wendell Berry

~~~~~~~~~~


Up in the morning's no for me,
Up in the morning early;
When a' the hills are covered wi' snaw,
I'm sure it's winter fairly.

-Robert Burns

~~~~~~~~~~


Visit to the Hermit Ts'ui


Moss covered paths between scarlet peonies,
Pale jade mountains fill your rustic windows.
I envy you, drunk with flowers,
Butterflies swirling in your dreams.


-Ch'ien Ch'i

~~~~~~~~~~


Mistress of high achievement, O lady Truth,
do not let my understanding stumble
across some jagged falsehood.


-Pindar

~~~~~~~~~~


Every Gaudy colour
Is a bit of truth.


-Nathalia Crane

~~~~~~~~~~


I counted two-and-twenty stenches,
All well defined, and several stinks.


-Samuel Coleridge
