"Il y a des pluies délicieuses où le ciel a l'air de pleurer de joie." Paul-Jean Toulet
Here at home, it's raining a much needed rain. The pink blossoms on our weeping crabapple trees hang heavy with diamond-like droplets. Vivid green shoots poke out of a "dark-as-chocolate-cake" soil. Un embarras of very wet richesses.
For you: fragrant lily-of-the-vally wishes, un bouquet de muguet (a French May Day tradition that I love).
*With a special bouquet going to Blyden Jackson who has stepped into his new Life and who will forever remain in our hearts.

Le Bisou Eternel Gouache on paper by Linda Hampton Smith
My 2012 gift of a wish for you is une belle naissance, a beautiful birth, of your best self. Where fears fall away and life is lived with a lightness of spirit, une vrai légèreté.
A sparkling, glittering, pétillant portrait of you...as you heed your whispering heart. A heart who says this, and only this:
Tu es bien aimé. You are so loved.
