The leaves fall, fall as if from far away,
like withered things from gardens deep in sky;
they fall with gestures of renunciation.

And through the night the heavy earth falls too,
down from the stars, into the loneliness.

And we all fall. This hand must fall.
Look everywhere; it is the lot of all.

Yet there is one who holds us as we fall
eternally in his hands' tenderness.

~ Rainer Maria Rilke

It seems there's a lot of stuff about falling in our neck of the blogosphere lately - what's more the next dalek post is about Time and Tide as well! daleks don't fall of course ... they more sort of plummet.

Anyway, you seem to be settling in nicely in your new cave-by-the-sea :)

By the way - about Profile views, Blogger have changed the way the count gets updated, precipitating lots of complaints! If you have a look here you'll see heaps of threads about these changes to Blogger Profile views ...

All The Best!
