  4. A haiku that aches, and says so much, in the monsoon. Oh dear, those numbers...without my glasses...why!

  5. That calms me down because when it rains heavy I do feel anxious as if the world were washing away. http://looseleafnotes.com

    1. Interesting way of looking at it, Bjorn... somehow I never think of lack of tears. But what you say is so true and lack of tears is so sad...
      Thanks Bjorn
