Christmas was good -but the scene outside was strange...after record amounts of snow this year (40+ inches) - we had a green, rainy Christmas! Rain and 40+ degrees on the big day. I looked out the window this morning and the koi were swimming around in the pond...Unbelievable!
"As, in a theatre, the lights are extinguished, for the scene to be changed with a hollow rumble of wings, with a movement of darkness on darkness, and we know that the hills and the trees, the distant panorama and the bold imposing facade are all being rolled away-....In order to arrive at what you are not you must go through the way in which you are not. And what you do not know is the only thing you know and what you own is what you do not own and where you are is where you are not. ...In my end is my beginning." from -Four Quartets, East Coker, III & V, T.S. Eliot
