I was up in Brisbane for the day today and it was quite a day! Worked non-stop for the duration of the trip and even more. There were a couple of important meetings to attend and some people at the ministry to see. All went well, so quite a successful trip.
This poem was written several years ago and was first written in Greek. Here is the English version.
Look at my outstretched open hand, There is a red, red rose in it; It is my heart, take it.
Look inside my clenched fist, hiding Two diamonds, precious sparkling; They are my glance, take it.
Look at your feet, what I lay down, A green bough, fresh fragrant; It is my body, take it.
Look once more in your deserted cage, There is a white dove imprisoned there now; It is my soul, take it.
And just when you thought I had nothing more to give, My tears, yield like a salt water fount, love. It’s love, take it.
I have been blogging daily on this platform for several years now. It is surprising that I have persisted as the world is changing and "microblogging" is now the norm. I blog to amuse myself, make comment on current affairs, externalise some of my creativity, keep notes on things that interest me, learn something new and to surprise myself with things that I discover about this wonderful, and sometimes crazy, world we live in.
I sometimes get the impression that I am on a soapbox delivering a monologue, so your comments are welcome.
