Wednesday January 7

I had a long day at my bench and all in all a fairly productive one. My rolling mill was only slightly temperamental and I overpowered it with my sweet personality and actually I used brute force.

I am a bit tired so today will going to be a short post. Everyone is getting ready for the GemShow.

The crackling communications full of
"I got how long till the show opens?"
"I gotta get on the ball here!"
"I am so far behind in my work I can see my own butt in front of me!"
"There are not enough days...what happened to all of the time that I thought I had"

Well, I am here to tell everyone, I ma in the same boat you all are.
We will get it all done, we are going to have a great time and we can take it all in stride.

Now, when the waters are pressing mightily
on the walls of the damns,
now, when the white storks, returning,
are transformed in the middle of the firmament
into fleets of jet planes,
we will feel again how strong are the ribs
and how vigorous is the warm air in the lungs
and how much daring is needed to love on the exposed plain,
when the great dangers are arched above,
and how much love is required
to fill all the empty vessels
and the watches that stopped telling time,
and how much breath,
a whirlwind of breath,
to sing the small song of spring.

Yehuda Amichai
