A Kind of Birthday Celebration

Here at the frontier, there are falling leaves.
Although my neighbors are all barbarians,
and you, you are a thousand miles away,
there are always two cups on my table.





My order from CafePress came today. I made these cups as a kind of celebration for this blog's six years of existence. They are available from CafePress if anyone else should decide to order one. They are not priced for me to make any money off of them in case you are wondering.

This poem placed above appears in John Fowles' The Magus. I don't think of my neighbors as barbarians, but you can find two cups of tea here awaiting your arrival. The door to this cafe is always open.
