where water wrestles with rock –
one yellow leaf

  1. crystal mystic waves… I like that.
    While walking the other day, many of the fallen leaves were already brown, but I saw that one yellow leaf upside down… and actually avoided stepping on it. 🙂


          • You know I read somewhere you were looking for a ~ …I always have purchased an English keyboard but would adjust my computer under “languages” and add French…perhaps you could add some languages like I did. You can’t see where the accents are but you learn to figure it out. I’ll get back toyou on that becauuse there is ALT plus numbers that gives you what you need as well, like my © is ALT 0169.


          • LOL … since I leartn to touch type, way back in 1966 … I’ve used a French keyboard, an Italian keyboard and I’ve also had a Swedish and German one. Sometimes when I’m working in DOS I have to look around to find where certain symbols are because using an Italian keyboard they’re placed differently on the keyboard (DOS is in English!) Thanks for the symbol …but it didn’t work 😦 on the comments here.


        • Oh, you are so kind — but it’s nowhere near perfect!

          If it makes you feel any better, I had a hard time adding to it as well. Felt sort of like Horton the Elephant: “I meant what I said and I said what I meant and now I’m stumped, 100%.”

          But I can relate to what you’re saying here — Kristjaan has picked some wonderful haiku from the rest of the CDHK crew – one of the haiku from Kuheli is coming to mind right now — and I think, “are you kidding? what else can I say??”

          sending hugs —- !
