Appearing for Fram is William Blake


When the brain ceases to work ....

My brain has not been working for several hours now. Was that a snicker I just heard?

My head cold of yesterday has evolved into a bit more, including a sore throat. Everything seemed to be moving in slow motion throughout Thursday. At least, it made for a relaxing day. A bite to eat here, a nap there, a few minutes on the computer after that, then check the mail, read a magazine article, head back to the computer and more napping.

Did you figure out what I am doing? Yes, stalling. You are right.

Since my brain is not cooperating, my string of consecutive days for posting is in jeopardy. Now, I can post these few words and my streak remains intact. Hopefully, within a few more hours, I will be better and return to "normal." Now, I am certain I heard snickering!

In the meanwhile, I will leave you with someone else's words:

He who binds to himself a joy
Does the winged life destroy;
But he who kisses the joy as it flies
Lives in eternity's sun rise.

William Blake
From: "Eternity"

Hey, Mister :) Get back to bed...lol
Feel better!

Fram said...

Aye, aye, ma'am. I will.

In an hour or so ....

Never underestimate the restorative powers of food and napping, a divine recipe for good health if ever there was one.

I hope that you're feeling a little better now Fram. William Blake's certainly wonderful, but I think you have him beaten hands down on the glorious T-shirt collection :-)

Get well soon please.

Greetings, Katy ....

I think I bottomed out yesterday, and am on the rise again. One more day. Thank you.

I particularly appreciate the insight of Blake within this piece.

I was familiar with that Blake's verse and it's refreshing to see it on a day when you're feeling rotten. At least your spirits are high. I wish you better.

Greetings from London.

Thank you, Cuban, for your visit, for the good wishes and for introducing me to Philip Pullman. I did finish reading him, by the way.

“…string of consecutive days for posting!” – Give yourself a little break!
…Something ends in order for something else to start anew…

P.S. Your math skills are fine, Fram. Three halves was not my “invention” – Seinfeld’s, I think!! I thought you would appreciate the joke!
Get better, eat more chocolates!

The consecutive-day game started when I began a blog. I said (to myself) that if I began one, I would run with it at least 30 consecutive days before allowing it to fade away. So far, still going.

It's a good joke, Natalie, wherever it originated.

Let's see, two chocolate chip cookies. That's the best I can do. Good idea.

Something special ....
