I couldn't believe my eyes when I wanted to activate todays Salon and the top diary had your greeting. Thanks rg - I really love flowers and they make up for the missing sunshine. :-)
Now I'm scared!
The seagulls have had their babies. There was one in the road today, fluffy down about its ears, wandering where cars...drive slowly. I looked around for the parents. There were seagulls on the roofs.
I think they've had less babies this year. A friend of mine told me that birds lay eggs according to the prevailing conditions. They lay as many eggs as they think will survive, plus one. The extra is insurance against hunger--the chick can eat the other egg for necessary protein etc.
I think the seagulls are down to about one or two chicks per couple. It's a lot less noisy, or I've become so accustomed....but I don't think so.
Hey, good morning!
Don't fight forces, use them R. Buckminster Fuller.
I love watching them, often the fly at the level of my balcony - though they give an erie feeling - like in the Hitchcock movie 'The Birds'.
A very good morning to both of you!

So in this way
from one plant
to the other
with your face
with a kiss
from the clay,
and came back
and from your hand
of the astromeria
raised its solitary elegance,
the mist on your brow
with stars of dew and fragrance.
grew from you
into the earth
foliage and power
your seeds to it,
red gardening woman:
on familiar terms
with the earth
and the bright growing
Love, thus also
your heart of earth,
and strength to my songs
while I sleep
and trees blossom
from my dreaming.
I wake up, open my eyes,
and you have
stars in the shadows
which will rise and shine
in my song.
That's how it is, gardening woman:
your mouth is a plant of light, a corolla,
my heart works among the roots.
I therefore claim to show, not how men think in myths, but how myths operate in men's minds without their being aware of the fact.
Did you take the picture?
I didn't shot it but I know the photographer.
One whose delusions are out of fashion.
And yes, THANK YOU Fran for all you do and bring to ET!
