Well I'm giving the terrarium another go. The previous occupants destroyed all of the plants. It became hard to keep clean and I had to prime the pump often. Now learning from past mistakes I've decided to try it again. I used to have two turtles who would eat pretty much anything in sight. I've been collecting various types of algae and plants to bring it back from a sorry state.

I think David Gilmore summed it all up in Quote:
"And you run and you run to catch up with the sun,
but its sinking
And racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in the relative way,
but you're older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death"I sang that verse a thousand times or so as a young man and never put any thought in the the profound meaning of it. Now as I grow older I find it laughing back with out making an audible sound to anyone out side my head. It's trying to chase the past like the light you left in your wake, Embers floating softly to the sky...
This is a great year and a great time of year. Everything is coming in view loud and clear and remarkable things are happening all around. Sounds seem brighter days grow sweeter and a great appreciation for the surrounding environment. I can't believe all the trees turning their leaves and the smell of spring. Welcome back welcome back. ;)
