better'n e-mail

I think this might be easier. After I got my friend web guru to set this up for me, I kind of realized that this might be better than e-mail, because it's all in one place, and I can put pictures up and things so you will remember me kindly.


I grabbed the last of the nasturtiums today and made them into a dressing for salads. Peppery! Just feeling the tissue of the blossoms under my fingertips reminds me of the apartment I was living in when you and I first began to date. There were windowboxes all along the railings, a profusion of red and bright bright joyful yellow, and that's what I remember in those first heady days of getting to know you, seeing your car pull up the street, watching you walk up to my door.

Those days were clear and sunny - new things were afoot. Those new things have somehow become old things (we're getting to be a couple of old things, ourselves), but the joy and comfort of those colors rings in my ears like belltones.
