The Old Wisdom by Jane Goodall

When the night wind makes the pine trees creak
And the pale clouds glide across the dark sky,
Go out, my child, go out and seek
Your soul: the eternal I.

For all the grasses rustling at your feet
And every flaming star that glitters high
Above you, close up and meet
In you: the Eternal I.

Yes, my child, go out into the world; walk slow
And silent, comprehending all, and by and by
Your soul, the Universe, will know
Itself: the Eternal I.

Ode to Sunny

His Majesty
In Memorium 12/22/07

I didn't go to the estate sale looking for a kitten but that's one of the things we came home with. Sunny actually lived next door to the sale but he and his siblings were outside on the porch and we just naturally gravitated there. Of course they needed homes we were told! As we sat on the steps playing with the kittens Sunny came up to me and promptly fell asleep on my lap. It was destiny. He is one of those great cats who knows his importance yet is generous in nature and allows his humans almost any liberty. His claws are quite sharp and used to protect his territory but never used on his people (except accidentally). He doesn't shred paper or books (unlike the other cat that lives here) so he is an ideal cat to have around. Plus he is a fairly decent vermin deterrent (the female calico was the best but she's no longer with us). Last summer he had a large abscess on one of his ears (he tends to get those protecting his turf) and he allowed us to squeeze, poke, prod and even cut it open to drain. No fuss from Sunny. He is one fine cat!

Died and gone to heaven...

I don't believe it. A library even more beautiful than the last photo I posted. This is the Assemblee Nationale Library. (thanks to fiddler's green on flickr)

Bibliophile's Dream

Awesome is the only word I can think of to describe this beautiful place, Victoria Library.

Like it?
