"unnecessary, powerless, priceless things"


   Flowers again? Stepping and phrasemaking again around flowers? Moreover, while still taking more or less the same footsteps and making the same phrases? 

    Yet I cannot help it...

    So I will begin again because it has begun all over again: the wonder, the astonishment, the bewilderment; the gratitude as well.)
