wrapped in rainbows


 "i have been in sorrow's kitchen and licked out all the pots. 
then i have stood on the peaky mountain 
wrapped in rainbows, 
with a harp and sword in my hands."
- zora neale hurston


 a new girl.
and fragrant late spring as
neighboring linden trees explode
with lime blossoms -
so sweet and green
they make the most soothing
tea liquor.
much needed sips of sanity
in the middle of a delightfully full house.
friends from all over the world
crashing in the spare room
and the couch
and on the studio floor
as we prepare
for our dear friends' wedding feast.
insanity of the most
wonderful kind.

excuse my absence from e-space,
until the joy-filled chaos
subsides.
 lime blossom tea-scented kisses
and a lovely weekend to you,
my friends!
