    WINTERING. Wintering is yet to over, lingering with its beauties. the days are passing slowly, one more winter's covering our spirits, with its rains, clouds and winds. The heaves of reddened leaves everywhere, embraced the soil, with the unforgettable smells of dry leaves. The crown-like rainbows smile over the clouds oftenly... Who knows how many winters we will live more? nessryn.

  2. Morrow Mayo:

    Here is an artificial city which has been pumped up under forced draught, inflated like a balloon, stuffed with rural humanity like a goose with corn...endeavoring to eat up this too rapid avalanche of anthropoids, the sunshine metropolis heaves and strains, sweats and becomes pop-eyed, like a young boa constrictor trying to swallow a goat. It has never imparted an urban character to its incoming population for the simple reason that it has never had any character to impart. On the other hand, the place has the manners, culture and general outlook of a huge country village.
