While trying to work out my connection to broadband
In relation to my entree into the (still confusing) world of AppleMac
I have been working on some tiling mosaics

This Fabulous image
was send to me by an email correspondent

The image is from Holland
And reminds me of many winter adventures
During my youth
It also reminds me of the painter

Pieter Breughel

Notes from New year’s Day ’09.
The silence of the heat of the day shimmers through the forest.

Busy bees drone in the key of G
for the golden load they carry,
like love, from the hearts of flowers.

The air is filled with the swish of swift swallows
flying fast from nest to sky, from sky to nest.

A Christmas lily which popped its bud on New year’s eve
today bleeds its vermilion red into the intense blue of the summer sky.
So much detail. So much delight.

And more delight to you dear reader,
may 2009 be filled with magic
and many surprises of the positive kind

‘At the cosmic filling station ask for a "full Tank"’
