BEFORE THE LAW stands a doorkeeper. To this door-keeper there comes a man from the country and prays for admittance to the Law. But the doorkeeper says that he cannot grant admittance at the moment. The man thinks it over and then asks if he will be allowed in later. "It is possible," says the doorkeeper, "but not at the moment." Since the gate stands open, as usual, and the doorkeeper steps to one side, the man stoops to peer through the gateway into the interior. Observing that, the doorkeeper laughs and says: "If you are so drawn to it, just try to go in despite my veto. But take note: I am powerful. And I am only the least of the door-keepers. From hall to hall there is one doorkeeper after another, each more powerful than the last. The third doorkeeper is already so terrible that even I cannot bear to look at him." These are difficulties the man from the country has not expected; the Law, he thinks, should surely be accessible at all times and to everyone, but as he now takes a closer look at the doorkeeper in his fur coat, with his big sharp nose and long, thin, black Tar-tar beard, he decides that it is better to wait until he gets permission to enter. The doorkeeper gives him a stool and lets him sit down at one side of the door. There he sits for days and years. He makes many at-tempts to be admitted, and wearies the doorkeeper by his importunity. The doorkeeper frequently has little interviews with him, asking him questions about his home and many other things, but the questions are put indifferently, as great lords put them, and always finish with the statement that he cannot be let in yet. The man, who has furnished himself with many things for his journey, sacrifices all he has, however valuable, to bribe the doorkeeper. The doorkeeper accepts every- thing, but always with the remark: "I am only taking it to keep you from thinking you have omitted any- thing." During these many years the man fixes his at-tention almost continuously on the doorkeeper. He for- gets the other doorkeepers, and this first one seems to him the sole obstacle preventing access to the Law. He curses his bad luck, in his early years boldly and loudly, later, as he grows old, he only grumbles to himself. He becomes childish, and since in his yearlong contempla-tion of the doorkeeper he has come to know even the fleas in his fur collar, he begs the fleas as well to help him and to change the doorkeeper's mind. At length his eyesight begins to fail, and he does not know whether the world is really darker or whether his eyes are only deceiving him. Yet in his darkness he is now aware t of a radiance that streams inextinguishably from the gateway of the Law. Now he has not very long to live. Before he dies, all his experiences in these long years gather themselves in his head to one point, a ques-tion he has not yet asked the doorkeeper. He waves him nearer, since he can no longer raise his stiffening body. The doorkeeper has to bend low towards him, for the difference in height between them has altered much to the man's disadvantage. "What do you want to know now?" asks the doorkeeper; "you are insati-able." "Everyone strives to reach the Law," says the man, "so how does it happen that for all these many years no one but myself has ever begged for admit-tance?" The doorkeeper recognizes that the man has reached his end, and to let his failing senses catch the words roars in his ear: "No one else could ever be admitted here, since this gate was made only for you. I am now going to shut it."


*** for my reading pleasure. off to class!!

Entry Tertangguh..

Selamat Tahun Baru kepada semua. Harapnya masih tidak terlambat lagi untuk saya mengucapkannya kepada semua. Banyak entri yang terpaksa ditangguhkan dahulu disebabkan oleh kesibukan saya menguruskan persekolahan anak2. Perlu diakui keperluan mereka perlu diutamakan dan yang ini hanyalah sebagai hobi saya sahaja...

Ini adalah fabrik2 di dalam penyertaan "Fat Quarter Joint Venture" anjuran kak zila. cantik fabrik2nya. memang saya suka. terima kasih kak zila!!!

Yang ini pula adalah buku yang saya perolehi daripada alynn. sangat teruja untuk memilikinya lalu membuka langkah seribu untuk mendapatkannya daripada alynn. Alhamdulillah..saya berjaya memilikinya. Suka sangat buku ni..

Beberapa projek yang menarik perhatian saya!!!

Majalah ini juga saya perolehi daripada alynn. saya juga meminati 'Cross Stitch"!!!

Ini adalah "storage box" dan "floss number stickers" bagi tujuan penyimpanan benang2 "cross Stitch" saya. benang2 saya sudah elok tersusun di dalamnya!!! terima kasih alynn!!
