A   L   O   H   A !
"... here is the deepest secret

 nobody knows -

- ( here is the root of the root

 and the bud of the bud 

and the sky of the sky 

of a tree called life;

 which grows higher

 than the soul can hope

 or mind can hide ) -

- and this is the wonder

 that's keeping the stars apart

 I carry your heart

(i carry it in my heart). "

                           e.e. cummings 
                                                 (1894 - 1962)

" None of you 
really has faith 
unless he desires 
for his neighbor 
what he 
desires for himself."
     Prophet Muhammad

"This is so nice, 
it must be illegal."
              Fats Waller

So Nice of YOU
to Visit!
                     Fondly, cloudia
