Howdy

Postby zamis » Sat Jan 03, 2009 12:35 pm

I'm known as raincloud elsewhere but really really tired of even a name so I've reverted to an old name from a beloved wolfdog companion many years ago, knowing there really is no rest anywhere...

In March I go to California, hoping that by then an aspiration can be voiced... until then in limbo with limbs able to carry wood and water for which I am grateful.

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Greetings and welcome, Zamis.

I was hoping you would work out where we'd all gotten to... thanks for finding us.
