…At The Grindstones











{June 25, 2010}   To Escape Us Unappreciated

“Completely inebriated, let us recline amid the fragrant verdure,

Suspending our silver lanterns on high underneath the flowers.

The fullness of youth turns all too easily into age.

Let us not permit the wonders of spring to escape us unappreciated.”


-Chin P’ing Mei, The Plum in the Golden Vase. Coda of a Song in Volume 3,

Chapter 46, First printed c.1610

But man, around here, Summer is ALOT harder to appreciate. But maybe a nice storm will blow in… 😉
