Khalil Gilbran The Prophet

Then an old man, a keeper of an inn, said, "Speak to us of Eating and Drinking."

And he said:

Would that you could live on the fragerance of the earth, and like an air plant be sustained by the light.

But since you must kill to eat, and rob the young of its mother′s milk to quench your thirst, let it then be an act of worship,

And let your board stand an altar on which the pure and the innocent of forest and plain are sacrificed for that which is purer and still more innocent in many.

When you kill a beast say to him in your heart,

"By the same power that slays you, I to am slain; and I too shall be consumed. For the law that delivered you into my hand shall deliver me into a mightier hand.

Your blood and my blood is naught but the sap that feeds the tree of heaven."

And when you crush an apple with your teeth, say to it in your heart,

"Your seeds shall live in my body,

And the buds of your tomorrow shall blossom in my heart,

And your fragrance shall be my breath,

And together we shall rejoice through all the seasons."

And in the autumn, when you gather the grapes of your vineyard for the winepress, say in you heart,

"I too am a vineyard, and my fruit shall be gathered for the winepress,

And like new wine I shall be kept in eternal vessels."

And in winter, when you draw the wine, let there be in your heart a song for each cup;

And let there be in the song a remembrance for the autumn days, and for the vineyard, and for the winepress.

Those sound best to me. I love oatmeal cookies. The batch I made last week is long gone. I don′t prefer chocolate in mine tho.. Walnuts. Yummy brown sugar is best!

We′re not going to have our first snow before Xmas!

Today there is a cold wind and its just a degree or so above freezing.
London seldom catches real bad weather but Scotland and N Ireland have already had real snow storms
(December Thunder ! Isn′t that an American saying? Its not Brtish as far as I know )

This post is an attempt to keep Spaceless ticking over in the short term .
It is repeated on several pages simply for bulk. I hope to post again when I have recovered a bit more
