As always there are some rare finds in every part of the world…Very contemporary woodwork - I am in love…This will come home with me…

And lastly for this posting:

i the black panther
lurking in your
freshly brewed
morning coffee

you the firebird
echoing in my
darkest dreams
at night

my voice cracks
too often
i seek sign language
- the language of your body

We all live in hope, that is the one thing that Pandora left in the box for us. I am looking forwards to the days to come. Especially the promise of St Marie…


tomorrow i will pour your sunrise
into fluted crystal

Till next time…
