"But now they drift on still water
mysterious, beautiful;
among what rushes will they build
by what lake`s edge or pool
delight men`s eyes, when I awake some day
to find they have flown away "?

Washday blues...

"Monday was washday always, and what an awesome task it used to be. When I was a child I used to begin dreading it on Sunday, hating the steam-filled kitchen, the wet quarry floor and the thudding of the maiden-tub".
-From "A Wartime Washing Day"-

trying to do our bit...

"Just for today...
I will let go of my worry
I will let go of my anger
I will do my work honestly
I will be kind to my neighbour and all living things
I will be grateful for all that I have".
