Roll on my third childhood (I'm already in my second).

 [FONT color=#40007f]The joys of nature from the sovereignty[/FONT]

 [FONT color=#40007f]Of my delight, and trade the fragile mood[/FONT]

 [FONT color=#40007f]Of innocence for knowledge, love for lust,[/FONT]

 [FONT color=#40007f]And leave the vastbness of ghe poetic wild[/FONT]

 [FONT color=#40007f]Of this so lovely world: let all my ways[/FONT]

 [FONT color=#40007f][/FONT]

 It is very well put, and a lovely thing to read.  Again, my thanks to you.  I would not like to cling to childhood, but to be able to experience that innocence and wonder at the newness of the world, even for a brief period of time.....that would indeed be a good thing.

    No, it wasn't an easy delivery.  The midwives kept trying to push him back..   But he persevered and won in the end.  [FONT color=#c00000][/FONT]

[FONT color=#ff0000]I envy you the ability to achieve such inner balance.  I seem to encounter so many interruptions, from the morning paper to the job, and there is so much unhappiness.  It is difficult to keep a happy spirit when you are surrounded with despair.  It gives me another reason to excape into books and disconnect myself from the real world.  And thinking of work, I must get ready to engage my brain and prepare for the worst. I must go and earn my cat food now.   And catnip.........mustn't forget catnip![/FONT]

[FONT color=#ff0000]So do I.  It has had some readers so perhaps somebody will join in.[/FONT]

Another thought.  When I answer something you have written in red, my print automatically turns red.  I wonder what causes that.

I've no idea, but I've found the same: if things work according to plan, this time you'll be in black

 You are right, it is black.  When I see red, it makes me think of paying bills!  

After rushing around most of the day, I have found great joy in just sitting down and relaxing.  Yet another of life's small pleasures.  Has your day gone well?

Went my day well? Yes - although I forgot to leave myself a ten minute space to just sit back and enjoy all that was around me (something I've also not yet done today, although when I think of it I spend so much time day dreaming) that I probably don't need 'special spaces). Today goes well too, even better. Reason being that after today I'm off until Sunday - all in all it's been a great week, only three days at work (thanks to having had two off to make up some overtime I did earlier in the year). Otherwise, I plan some gardening, beer-drinking and reading (in that order).

  And you? What have you purred about?

  P.S. Please note: this thread has now attained hot topic status!

Tell me about the gardening, please.
For thou art with me; thy cream and thy sugar they comfort me
Thou preparest a carafe before me in the presence of Juan Valdez
Thou anointest my day with pep; my mug runneth over
Surely richness and taste shall follow me all the days of my life
And I will dwell in the house of coffee forever.

Are you REALLY interested - in cutting lawns, weeding, cutting-off dead flowers, making sopaces for new growth, germinating seeds etc.

  It's a more natural pursuit than that primitive mystery  (or is it a rite?) which seems so beloved by so many of the undiscerning.

  Are you really interested in cutting lawns, weeding, cutting off dead flowers, sustaining a compost heap and watching spending hours waiting for yet another seed to germinate?

  Incidentally, welcome third poster on this thread!

  Lucky you!  An extended holiday sounds wonderful.   *as my complexion turns a mild shade of green.  A green kitten is an astonishing sight!*

  I'm very happy because I surprised my older sister with a bouquet of roses for her birthday.  She lives in the Maritimes, and it was fun organizing the surprise for her.

    P.S. Please note: this thread has now attained hot topic status! I guess that means that we are very good at corresponding.   I don't really understand why this is labeled a hot topic when we are the only ones contributing here.  Perhaps now we'll start to draw the crowds.  lol

Yayyy!  Our first "crowd" has reported in.  Gopher, I believe tenkani is studying gardening.

Yes, I'm really interested.

I'm studying horticulture, so babble away if you're feeling froggy.
For thou art with me; thy cream and thy sugar they comfort me
Thou preparest a carafe before me in the presence of Juan Valdez
Thou anointest my day with pep; my mug runneth over
Surely richness and taste shall follow me all the days of my life
And I will dwell in the house of coffee forever.

Will have to do this at a later date, I've got to get back to work for now. However, I'll certainly tell you something - how about, for example, everything that's in flower at present?
