“It's spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want - oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!” Mark Twain
Safely home after the late night flight from Perth. It was a very long hard day’s work without break. However, it was quite successful, although another trip to Perth is on the cards in the near future. Going to the airport it was hard to ignore the signs of spring… Query
The plum trees blossom again this year, For whom? The sun regains its warmth, its brilliance, Why?
New leaves unfurl, The trees bedeck themselves with emeralds, The garden is fragrant once again As bulbs wildly bloom.
The earth is springing forth And yet again, the mornings bright. Where are you? Have you seen it all?
Has anybody noticed it, Has somebody really wondered, Become enraptured? Or has the spring blossom Uncurled its fragrant petals, All in vain?
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.
