My first step

I just bought the seeds of baby carrot.   Yea,,,,carrots. Just try to grow something at my house backyard. Starting with baby carrots. The very first step is the beginning. Feeling so excited…

The young poet Evmenis
complained one day to Theocritos:
“I have been writing for two years now
and I have composed just one idyll.
It’s my only completed work.
I see, sadly, that the ladder of Poetry
is tall, extremely tall;
and from this first step I now stand on
I will never climb any higher.”
Theocritos replied: “Words like that
are improper, blasphemous.
Just to be on the first step
should make you happy and proud.
To have come this far is no small achievement:
what you have done is a glorious thing.
Even this first step
is a long way above the ordinary world.
To stand on this step
you must be in your own right
a member of the city of ideas.
And it is a hard, unusual thing
to be enrolled as a citizen of that city.
Its councils are full of Legislators
no charlatan can fool.
To have come this far is no small achievement:
what you have done already is a glorious thing.”

– C.P. Cavafy

  1. I do accept as true with all the ideas you have offered on your post.
    They’re very convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are very brief for starters.
    Could you please prolong them a bit from subsequent time?
    Thank you for the post.
