Comparative Platypus

Marcus Aurelius:
"Ceaseless flux and change make boundless eternity ever young."

Taoism:
"The way that can be named is not the eternal way, which is inconstant."

Goethe:
"Thy works unfathomed and unending proclaim the first day's splendor still."

Tennyson:
"Let the great world roll forever down the ringing grooves of change."

The Platypus rhymes

Mystery:
Freddy

The old word doctor lost his mind,
You see he tried to find it.
He might have faired quite differently
Had he only looked behind it.

Mr C. and Mystery go walking hand in hand together.
Here shall ye see no enemy, save winter and rough
weather.

Pumpkin Platypus

Autumn Notes:

Nothing quite says Fall has arrived like eating fresh pumpkin pie with a nice cup of tea in a darkened house during a rain storm.

I made a little arrangement for our coffee table the other day with a small pumpkin, some Autumn leaves and two gourds.

The air is so much more fresh and wholesome after a rain storm. I just love the breath in the scent of wet leaves.

Each season has its glories but by far the Platypus' favourite is Fall.
