Waking up this morning I was surprised to see the snowfall. Wasn’t this the first week of April? What would Chaucer say if he came back to this world? He would have to make a few corrections to his words about the month of April. Luckily, by afternoon the snow had melted and we could admire the cherry-blossom in the neighbour’s garden.
Today is also the day when the Olympic torch was being taken through London. The protesters created quite an impression. It is a pity that the Olympic Games which are supposed to bring the world together in a joyous way and are above all political colouring have got entangled in the stories of political clashes. Of course, the Tibetans need everyone’s support but perhaps there should be some things in this world that should be left out of what goes on in the political field.
