Danke Gazelle (Chantal) & Charis (bluecharis.diaryland.com) for your nice & very first guestbook entries, depriving it from virginity.
There's a japanese Hai-ku: "Einer muß die Reinheit des frisch gefallenen Schnees als erster betreten. Unselig aber wer es tut!
(Someone has to be the first one to step on the purity of the fresh fallen snow. But unfortunate the one who does!) - is in this case totally wrong -
in similar cases I'm totally greedy to be the first - (only pioneer deeds interest me - not the many followers repeating & step in their leaders footprints later on) and some things get totally uninteresting, if you're not the first (e.g. in inventioning)
& Charis, you also made my day - I doubted to continue this diary, but now will do..
