  1. You remind me this poem, sometimes words, images orients us off topic, but the main thing that make us think
    “[…]to say or to vouchsafe at least the beginnings of something vital (she hides
    minor discoveries at the back of her head)

    she is particularly keen on the eyes and the faces the smile of comprehension
    in something similar someone similar

    … her inconversations she sits with both her hands on the edge of the table
    seems to be asleep today she has only bought one bunch of dill”

    Have a good weekend Kari.
