The neighbour's delectable apricots hang across the fence right by our garden gate........
I haven't yet laid eyes upon the snake, but temptation is strong!
"Is not the action of nature like the stretching of a bow?
The high, it pulls down; the low, it lifts up;
it takes from what is in excess
in order to make good of what is deficient.
Who can take what they have in excess and offer it to others?"
