AN ODE TO FIRST FLUSH DARJEELING

as month and month passes by
the warm spring sun fills the sky
i wait in heated anticipation
as the fresh crop grows in the plantation

leaves picked and placed in wicker
your delicate sweet liquor
flavours filled with characters that are deep
i close my eyes in a twilight sleep

i awake on the day as it arrives
awaiting the taste that revives
i pour the nectar in a cup
and lean back as i feel myself soaking it up

So…I clicked on the first link months ago and have shared with you the adventures of Matt & Nat – here are the final clips.  I have savoured each and every one and hope you loved ‘getting to know them’ as much as I have.  Pack a bag and throw yourself out into the world…

This TED talk clip reminded me of an old myth about the bumblebee. The myth says that the bumblebee, through the laws of aerodynamics, should not be able to fly. its wing size relative to the beats per second that it flaps those wings, should not be able to put the bumblebee into flight. But we know that it does fly – so how is that possible? The answer is simple: Because nobody ever told it that it can’t.
