“A flower is relatively small. Everyone has many associations with a flower – the idea of flowers…. Still – in a way – nobody sees a flower – really – it is so small – we haven’t time – and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time….”
Yes, to have a friend takes time (despite what Facebook and other social media attempt to lead you to believe). Our old friends from Cologne, Germany arrive within a very few days, and for the time they are here, they will take all our time, naturlich.
It’s only been by taking time when rare opportunities presented themselves that we’ve been able to maintain this trans-Atlantic friendship so long and so deeply. But you, my newer and precious blogging friends, need time as well — For the next 10 days I will print posts from corresponding days a year ago, beginning tomorrow; and keep all of your posts until I can feast on them at the end of the month.
Poppies are worth the time; friends are worth the time. Keep an eye out for the repeat blog posts beginning with A Sleuth of Bears. Bis bald, my friends: till soon —
