WISHING TRUTH BARRIER FAMILY CONGRATULATIONS FOR SURVIVING 2017!
Thank you for all you do to keep the determined flame here. I am always amazed and grateful that YOU are still there. May we all find more of what we seek, in 2018. Happy New Year! And here’s a little bit of Pushkin to kick us off, from my Russian friend Marina Himanen. <3
It’s time, my friend, it’s time! (Rhyming)
It’s time, my friend, it’s time — the heart demands repose —
The days are flying by, and with each moment goes
A tiny slice of life, and vainly, you and I
Endeavor thus to live, but in a wink we die.
There is no bliss on Earth, but there is scope and solace;
For many years I’ve dreamed of this elusive promise:
A place that will give me, a tired slave, new strength
Through able-bodied work and simple, pleasant things.
