my occasional musings on life, love, art, perfume ... what else is there?

Mostly I Hate It When We Have These Little Talks


I always know I'm in for a good time when Jim takes me by the wrist, says "Come here. I want to talk to you." And drags me over to the sofa, where he sits me down, puts his arm around me and proceeds to lecture.

"Your writing means a million dollars to me. When you've done something creative, you have a sense of satisfaction that stays with you the whole day. You're happy. Not angry. Not sad."

But aren't my political posts creative?

"No."

Today's second fragrance: Yosh Han's Ginger Ciao 2.27 with notes of black coconut, night queen, tiger lily, neroli, ylang ylang, ginger, basil. It's a dark, totally non-beachy scent with a nice spiced herb undertone. I only like two coconut scents: this one and Pilar and Lucy's The Exact Friction of Stars. (There's a great name for you, Janey.)

For effect huh? Are you all smiley you scared us? What would I do without the names? I came over for a name because I was posting a pix just now and there it was. Perfect. But the Extact Friction of Stars will have to wait for the muse to strike - though it is a wonderful name for a story. I think the next one will be Pilar unless of course you post a better one by then.
