Although we are well into Spring this time of year, poet T.S. Eliot’s famous line comes to mind -- “April is the cruelest month” so much promise yet so much disappointment weather wise. Well, at least the birds are happy each morning singing their little heads off with the sunrise while at sunset the peepers, that symphony of frogs, heralds in the new season.
Here at Khnadroling, it appears that rain or shine, a few hearty ones are out in the field undertaking the enormous project of beautification-- generally--Joe and Nary, Yuchen (taking photos) and David; Sean and Ruben probably on week-ends; most likely others too.
Thank You, Thank You workers and also all you donors out there who make it happen. It’s the perfect collaboration of liquid gold in the form of energy partnering with the solid gold of the green stuff. Together we can do great things. Happy Spring to all!
