The wine of life is oozing drop by drop,
The leaves of life are falling one by one.

Omar Khayyam

    Well if this true – all the more reason to replace it at every opportunity!
    Now where did I put that corkscrew? ;-)

    Hi, I popped over from Spiritual Sundays. Intriguing quote. One that makes me doubly appreciate so many words of encouragement in the Bible, such as, “those who wait for the Lord Will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary.” :) Have a blessed and beautiful week.

    The leaves are starting to turn here, Cherry, and some are already falling. But now I’m wondering if Omar was trying to make a statement about too much wine and falling??? HA!

    Ginnie makes a point… and leaves are falling here, when we go for a walk on the citadel, we wear safety-helmets, we have hundreds of chestnut trees there and the chestnuts are falling too…..

  8. The leaves are not falling yet, but they are beginning to shift in color….lovely thoughts today Cherie!

  9. Already autumn here in London. ;)
