I recall your old posting but I do not recall if we ever figured out what it said . . .

"I spin under the hand of others and never rest,
neither evening nor morning,
because the one who spins me returns so suddenly
without waiting for today or tomorrow."

That is very cool.  My collection of tops is growing.  I keep about 5 of my favorites in the Living Room.  I find that I can hardly pass by them without picking one or two of them up and giving them a couple spins.  It always makes me feel better.
Enjoy taking my tops for a spin
