For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson
What a perfect Spring day today! Fine and sunny, a temperature in the mid-twenties, all the flowers in bloom, the leaves on the trees green and new and the birds fluttering about and twittering. We went out for some shopping this morning and then back home to sit in the glorious garden and have lunch. This afternoon, doing the cryptic crossword and then a beautiful evening. It’s good to be alive!
Here’s is some wonderful night music. It is Arvo Pärt’s “Spiegel im Spiegel” (Mirror in a Mirror).
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.
