Apparently I have to take my noble banner and do my noble deeds over at Andrew's place now, because he wants us all to be together, the fickle fool. So that's where I'll be (maybe)...

He is a fellow who flips his plans as often as the wild wind does flap my flippin' flag.

Just a glimpse (may have to be enough)

We live in a world of changing season
with effects that must each have a cause
but within that may lie deeper reason
or things that are just there because
Not beginning or ending or affecting
just always and always and on...

So is everything just here for ever
in a world that is endlessly stuck
in a cycle of repeated repeating
which is possibly just our tough luck?

And it's never the thought that's the problem
The problem is in the belief
There's nothing silly in wondering
but's it's silly to think that we know
if knowing just cannot be justified
as most claims of knowing cannot
It may not be easy not knowing
but that may just be the problem we've got

From the week at the bottom of the year

The sun is still there and the flowers and leaves will be back
