Early morning. I’ve gathered armfuls of magnificent Casa Blanca Lilies, Star-gazer Lilies, and whispery, licorice scented fennel.
Gabriel Fauré’s Requiem fills the room with inspiring sound. Introit et Kyrie . . . Offertoire . . . glorious music that fills one heart and calms the soul. I plunge the lilies into glittering crystal vases. They deserve nothing less.
Gorgeous, glamours lilies.
Exultation of lilies.
The sweet perfume of fennel.
The intoxicating fragrance of garden fresh flowers.
Pie Jesu … Libera me … In paradisi.
In this moment I put aside these troubled time and journey to a place of peace and quiet.
