Well, we've had several sunny days in a row now, so everybody is feeling very spring-y. And it is officially spring today after all.

My hot water tank has started leaking, so my landlord found a new one yesterday and will be installing it this afternoon. I'm so pleased it didn't burst - drips are so much easier to deal with.

The Clod and the Pebble

"Love seeketh not Itself to please,
Nor for itself hath any care,
But for another gives its ease,
And builds a Heaven in Hell's despair."

So sang a little Clod of Clay
Trodden with the cattle's feet,
But a Pebble of the brook
Warbled out these metres meet:

"Love seeketh only Self to please,
To bind another to Its delight,
Joys in another's loss of ease,
And builds a Hell in Heaven's despite."

William Blake
1757 - 1827
