Motto of the month:

Gather ye hens' eggs while ye may,
for the clock it is a-tickin',
and that same egg ye seek today,
tomorrow will be chicken.

Rains. Wandering. Here and there, Walking. Sitting, Carika (in Thailand miscalled thudong -- a corruption of dhutanga) in Northern Thailand. Hills. Cool. Soon rainy season retreat. Where? up in the air, No, no, actually, I'll stay on the ground. But where? Still up in the air.

A few ideas keep arising, but instead of chewing on these old bones, I just let 'em fall.

Yes, sure, but... but what's it all about?
