John Greenleaf Whittier, 1807 – 1892
Oh, greenly and fair in the lands of the sun,
The vines of the gourd and the rich melon run,
And the rock and the tree and the cottage enfold,
With broad leaves all greenness and blossoms all gold,
Like that which o’er Nineveh’s prophet once grew,
While he waited to know that his warning was true,
And longed for the storm-cloud, and listened in vain
For the rush of the whirlwind and red fire-rain.
On the banks of the Xenil the dark Spanish maiden
Comes up with the fruit of the tangled vine laden;
And the Creole of Cuba laughs out to behold
Through orange-leaves shining the broad spheres of gold;
Yet with dearer delight from his home in the North,
On the fields of his harvest the Yankee looks forth,
Where crook-necks are coiling and yellow fruit shines,
And the sun of September melts down on his vines.
Ah! on Thanksgiving day, when from East and from West,
From North and from South comes the pilgrim and guest;
When the gray-haired New Englander sees round his board
The old broken links of affection restored,
When the care-wearied man seeks his mother once more,
And the worn matron smiles where the girl smiled before,
What moistens the lip and what brightens the eye?
What calls back the past, like the rich Pumpkin pie?
Oh, fruit loved of boyhood! the old days recalling,
When wood-grapes were purpling and brown nuts were falling!
When wild, ugly faces we carved in its skin,
Glaring out through the dark with a candle within!
When we laughed round the corn-heap, with hearts all in tune,
Our chair a broad pumpkin,—our lantern the moon,
Telling tales of the fairy who travelled like steam
In a pumpkin-shell coach, with two rats for her team!
Then thanks for thy present! none sweeter or better
E’er smoked from an oven or circled a platter!
Fairer hands never wrought at a pastry more fine,
Brighter eyes never watched o’er its baking, than thine!
And the prayer, which my mouth is too full to express,
Swells my heart that thy shadow may never be less,
That the days of thy lot may be lengthened below,
And the fame of thy worth like a pumpkin-vine grow,
And thy life be as sweet, and its last sunset sky
Golden-tinted and fair as thy own Pumpkin pie!
80% of all new year resolutions are dead and buried latest by January 21st, research has shown. The reason is that many people set unrealistic goals. This year I have decided to focus 100% on resolutions that are completely realistic and achievable.
Exercise more: train the heart muscle by being more nervous.
Train other mussels during scuba diving.
Protect the environment by driving less – stop traveling from “A to B” constantly. What’s so special about B anyway?
Knowledge is Power. The importance of education cannot be underestimated! Make sure that no one gets smarter than me, so kill any training requests by colleagues, employees and family members in the bud.
Buy a fur coat for showing off in the city center.
Take up nail biting.
Invest in the future! E.g. by selling pets for animal experiments.
Sell the dog for animal experiments.
Drink less – definitely!!! Need to reduce water intake, focus on beer instead.
Take revenge on mother for terrible childhood. Revenge is a dish best served cold; meaning that it is better not to act in the heat of the moment, but to let the matter rest (if not ripen) for a while, and then strike and reap the fruits of one’s patience. Apparently a Sicilian saying, although I mostly associate it with Fu Man Chu.

Father and I went down to camp Along with Captain Gooding And there we saw the men and boys As thick as hasty pudding.
Yankee doodle, keep it up Yankee doodle dandy Mind the music and the step And with the girls be handy.
There was Captain Washington Upon a slapping stallion A-giving orders to his men I guess there was a million.
And then the feathers on his hat They looked so’ tarnal fin-a I wanted pockily to get To give to my Jemima.
Winter. Sky grey with snow coming down in slowmotion flakes, virgin white falling asleep on your shoulders and cap and touching your lips ever so lightly. Lights behind windows that pull visitors to come in from the cold. Comforting. And looking forward to the holiday season in the absence of religion, with food and lights and people that come to visit. With presents, that remind of youth, when for a girls and boys Christmas was magical and an anchor in time; like the last day of school or a birthday.

“This is a great book, if what you want is action, violence, humor, and character development. Strong, quick acting Alan is a scientist, traveling for business. Things do not turn as predicted. One of my goals with this book was to raise awareness of just how vulnerable we are to a pandemic in the developed world. I also wanted to showcase how a single person can cope with being a lone survivor. You need to be able to rely on your own moral fiber, on your physical strength on your willpower. We’ve gone long without a major pandemic that kills millions. Let’s face it, if we knew, we’d be even more frightened; with the huge global population, the possibility that a pandemic strikes isn’t that remote. I want you caring about the character as well as the world. Action occurs, and contact is made with the beings on alien “ships”, the book – on purpose – does not answer all questions. After all, in case of a pandemic, with a breakdown of communication and internet and so on, there will be more questions than answers – or replies. Imagine the world falling apart while this plague designates the entire population. You will enjoy this ride with the hero Alan, as he speeds across Asia towards what was Western Europe.”
Reading – unlike other activities you can do it practically anywhere.
