cold haily rainy night

Every day one should at least hear one little song, read one good poem, see one fine painting and -- if at all possible -- speak a few sensible words.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832) writer & polymath


such wonderful mouse medicine from goethe! so far i think i'm three for four....

i absolutely adore the imagined village - as its currently a cold rainy night (with more than a promise of hail) here on the north coast, i offer as today's song the musical collective's version of the folk song cold haily rainy night - which i first heard many years back by the great martin carthy - who by the way is one of the ever revolving members of the imagined village!

I love this Goethe quote, and oh, I love anything Goethe really.

I'm loving that photo of the squirrel. Oh, he looks so full of personality! With 9 cats on the back porch, we don't have any squirrels hanging around right now. ha.

I think I'd be stuck on the "few sensible words."

Love the song - never heard it before so that is a bonus. Enjoy whatever the weather brings - be it rain, hail or snow.
