The book is nearing completion. It will soon be Cherry Blossom time!
When asked if he was never discouraged by the little fruit his efforts
seemed to yield, the Master told a story of a snail that started to climb a
cherry tree, one cold windy spring morning.
The sparrows on a neighbouring tree had a good laugh at his expense. Then one flew over and said, “Hey blockhead, don’t you know there are no cherries on that tree?”
The little fellow did not stop as he replied, “Well, there will be when I get there.”
