missing: spring

thank you to all for your feedback :) it is very muchly appreciated.
people are lovely.
& yes, i did kinda miss out spring.. (well,completely) but i do love spring too..
im reading slaughterhouse5 at the moment, by kurt vonnegut. wish i had read it sooner, its amaaazing.

im nearly finished..there are so many bits that i love, but this excerpt resonated with me especially:

the second letter started out like this: 'the most important thing I learned om Tralfamadore was that when a person dies he only appears to die. He is still very much alive in the past, so it is very silly for people to cry at his funeral. All moments, past, present, & future, always have existed, always will exist. The Tralfamadorians can look at all the different moments just the way we can look at a stretch of the Rocky Mountains, for instance. They can see how permanent all the moments are, and they can look at any moment thats interests them. It is just an illusion we have here on earth that one moment follows another one, like beads on a string, and that once a moment is gone it is gone forever. When a Tralfamadorian sees a corpse, all he thinks is that the dead person is in bad condition in that particular moment, but that the same person is just fine in plenty of other moments. Now, when I myself hear that somebody is dead, I simply shrug & say what the Tralfamadorians say about dead people, which is "so it goes".

happy weekend! :)
