Oh, Lord. Let me Who-Who on your hand too, my poor little princess. While in my shower last night, I was thinking about how you managed yourself in daily routines and how you struggled to post a lengthy note to us. Although you didn't mention anything about the pain and frustration, I seemed to feel the immediate pain in my hand and in my heart. I want to give you a sweet embrace and a light Who-Who on your hand and I hope the warmth and compassion from many people will somewhat ease your stress.
Your impressions on the palm tree and peacock were quite intriguing. I have been thinking quite instinctively that everything we see seems charged with certain meaning, however subtle it is. The external world is full of signals and messages, and it takes the internal depths of us to interpret and to communicate. I was also very delighted by Stella's view on the "Autumn". It's a stellar article that seems exquisitely simple, and simply wonderful.
I was amused that the allusion of Charles River would arouse an appetite for "Peking Duck"! But we're going to get the duck from the Chinese restaurant and leave those river ducks alone, right? :) There are many wild ducks roaming in my neighborhood and perching on my front and back yard. My neighbors take pleasure in feeding them regularly. There are traffic signs in my neighborhood that say, "Alert duck-crossing". You know if I cook them, you will surely see my name on the morning newspaper the next day. :)

I have come to realize that your presence is important to me. You evoke so much vision and attentin to people and things that you lead me inevitably to call on remote experiences or to explore new experiences. It's common that people could feel lost and lonely in a big crowd, but I seem to recognize something of you in each of your notes and messages, and it certainly has a reassuring effect on me.
I don't know if you still remember the backdrop of the movie "Pelican Brief". It was set in New Orleans. It shows scenes of our city such as the street car, the River-Walk, and the Mardi Gras. It also shows the scenes of ducks, geese, brown pelicans and other waterfowl flying freely over the marshes in the sunset. I remember ET read some of John Grisham's books. I only have one book "The Client" form him, which I got it for Christmas and I haven't had a chance to read it ever since I saw the movie.
I can understand why you favor the movie "Fly Away Home" so much, for some of the dialogues and scenes are so poignant that it could evoke a lot of emotions in people, especially the emotions for parents and children. I feel the same way, Four Seasons.
ET and Four Seasons, this will be my final chapter of writing for this month. Take care, my friends. I will talk to you agian in November.
I seem to hear the song "10,000 miles" humming silently in my heart, "Fare you well....Farewell for a while...,But I'll be back........."
