'Life is a stream on which we strew petal by petal the flower of our heart
The end lost in dream
They float past our view, we only watch their glad, early start. Freighted with hope, Crimsoned with joy, We scatter the leaves of our opening rose; Their widening scope,
Their distant employ we never shall know.
And the stream as it flows sweeps them away, each one is gone ever beyond into infinite ways.
We alone stay while years hurry on, The flower fared forth, though its fragrance still stays'.
For those who don't understand Cricket
Each man that's in the side that's in goes out, and when he's out he comes in and the next man goes in until he's out.
When they are all out, the side that's out comes in and the side that's been in goes out and tries to get those coming in, out. Sometimes you get men still in and not out.
When a man goes out to go in, the men who are out try to get him out, and when he is out he goes in and the next man in goes out and goes in. There are two men called umpires who stay all out all the time and they decide when the men who are in are out.
When both sides have been in and all the men have been out, and both sides have been out twice after all the men have been in, including those who are not out, that is the end of the game.
You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars you have a right to be here
Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive him to be
Desiderata - Max Ehrmann
The Piano Blog
I'm trying to play the Piano for a while most days. Just improvising whatever comes into my head.
Just to capture a moment.
All these pieces are unedited, one take and so mistakes are included !
