This is the first chance I've had to get to the computer, what with Christmas barrelling down on me like an eighteen-wheeler with no brakes on glare ice coming down a 9% grade and all. I want to wish a Very Happy Birthday-That-Was to not_a_zatarc and rgcraeg. If I type fast (not one of my strengths) then I can probably get this posted in time to have it come up before midnight for rgcraeg, but alas, Naz, you are an New Englander like me, and for you this will be late! I hope that both of you have been having a wonderful time, and being late December babies, I'm sure you are also overly used to hearing the whole "We'll have a lovely little celebration, just as soon as I get this Christmas stuff done" speech too. *sigh* Please be patient. Ficlets will be brewing while I am down visiting my Mom for the week and exiled from the internetz.

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
