Looking at your pics, both here and on your blog, I keep wondering if there isn't a spare bunk in your motorhome ....

:lol: Nice to hear from you!

Spare bunk? Man, it's a bit like a submarine, the best will be akin to a 'hotbunk'. And at my (our) age the easy acceptance of 'hotbunks' has somehow dissipated. However - you can always fly into Munich, rent a campervan and come visit! Now there's a thought! Imagine how between us we could keep this Forum busy!

"Berigte uit Bulgarye" could be the heading .... :D :partyman:

Ja, it would be a hoot having the two of you together, as long as we get updates.
Tally-ho would just have to remember not to post Eugene's mug anywhere as it may just spoil the party, I think.

And a woman who held a babe against her bosom said, "Speak to us of Children."

And he said:

Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.

They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you, yet they belong not to you.

You may give them your love but not your thoughts.
For they have their own thoughts.

You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.

You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.

You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far.

Let your bending in the archer's hand be for gladness;
For even as he loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable.

"The Prophet" - Kahill Gibran.

It's not normally my habit to spout poetry (other than the occasional dirty limerick) but when I saw the photo this is the first thought that came up.

Those words from the poet Kahill Gibran does put 'life' into the picture, thanks for making me (us) aware of it. I've posted two pictures and said poetry onto my Blog.
