* I'm spoiled
Jeannie also brought home many delicious morsels .... for ME!! I swooned over the hand made, triple milled soap and potpourris from the lavender fields of France. Smell is a powerful stimulant, and lavender for me is very sensual. I simply can't resist it. I breathed in deeply and slowly and sighed ... and sighed ... and .... again. AHHHhhhh. The brilliant, sparkling, bracelet from Venice (from the famous Murano Glass Works) was next. It is soooooo very feminine! I don't want to take it off. It invites my very sensual wild woman side to emerge ... so look out! Next ... an orange silk embroidered scarf from Turkey .... look out again, 'cause here comes my Gypsy Woman. I simply long to wrap my head in it, place huge golden hoops in my ears, and dance naked in my bare feet by the night fire. (Who knew a scarf could be so dangerous!) The silk woven bookmark from the ruins of Ephesus topped it all off. I use it exclusively for my book, "Prayers to the Great Creator" by Julia Cameron. Exactly the right fit. The bookmark feels sacred.
So as you can see, I feel very spoiled. It is lovely to be remembered and thought of. Thank you for doing both of those things Jeannie. And ... thank you for the very special gifts.
