i really should have written this yesterday while it was still clear in my mind... but... its already getting foggy in there, we saw a fantastic program on tv on tuesday evening about the mediterranean and its history etc, and one thing i found out that i never knew is that due to the fact that there is more evaporation exceeds precipitation ... as in not as much water comes back in than leaves it every year and its the water coming in through the straights at gibraltor that keep it going, but still... every two thousand years or so the Med completely dries up!

well give up cant find a photo of it but they also showed these amazing salt mines in sicily formed during the last two thousand dry spell in the med, there is enough salt that it can never run out... they had also built an under ground chapel in these salt mines... all made, of course, in salt!

yesterday in the newspaper shop here they didnt deliver some of the papers.... but it was ok, they sent them in today!?!

No one can avoid defeat.
That is why it is better to lose a few battles
in the fight for your dreams than to be defeated
without even knowing why you were fighting.
By the River Piedra I sat down down and wept.
