Close One!

"Perfection is achieved,

not when there is nothing to add,

but when there is nothing left to take away."

Antoine de Saint-Exupery


is one of the hardest arguments to refute."

both the lotus and the slimy scum are found.”

Sri Guru Granth Sahib

There is a gold mist slanting through the harbor this morning.

It looks especially beautiful

when I reflect on how very close I came.

Has it been ten years? It has!

I haven't left the islands in this century.

It seemed so tangible, so close. Folks fly back and forth every day (and we're grateful that you come to visit us)

I was really gonna visit the West Coast,

But it got kinda complicated.

Where to stay? Who and When to meet up with.

So I've decided to remain island anchored for a while longer.

After all: I'm where I really wanna be.

And I'm so very glad that YOU have stopped by!

Warmly, cloudia
