Monday´s Quotation

[Weekly Geeks # 9 - a Quote a Day]

Today´s quotation is an appetizer for my review tomorrow. I read a Norwegian crime novel in Danish, but found the following English quotation in it:

"There will be time to murder and create
And time for all the works and days of hands

That lift and drop a question on your plate;

Time for you and time for me,

And time yet for a hundred indecisions

And for a hundred visions and revisions,

Before the taking of a toast and tea.


In the room the women come and go

Talking of Michelangelo"


From ´The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock´, T.S. Eliot.

As this post is not a "Bait in the Box" there are no rules. Enjoy the poem, post a guess, clue or answer, or wait for the review. If you want to play, however, the photo above is meant as a helpful clue.
The photo below is of today´s mail. The very generous sender and I know what is inside the envelope, but we are not going to tell you - yet.

Nice post! The guys in the local post office are getting used to me now - and my parcels to Denmark. Last time they said to me "that will be £3" (or whatever it was) - "next time you come in we will charge you £200!" One of them said he lived next door to the place where the Bank of England prints the money, and he hasn't been able to sleep because the presses have been turning all night creating more and more cash for us to try to live off. Well, all I can say is that I could not spend the money on a better cause ;-).

Thanks Maxine, what a nice comment :)
And when they charge you £ 200, please tell me, so I can print some notes on my husband´s very professional copy machine LOL

Argh!!!! So now I have to wait for two things: the fish book and the item in the bag!

I know I am not being kind to you. I promise to read the book in the bag as soon as possible. And you´re probably going to enjoy that one more than the fish book. (Not a Beth Fish book, I think ;))
