|flowers at home|
Yesterday I drove the first leg of a trip and hit hell traffic, a zone of time and space where it seemed certain that I would spend eternity on a New Jersey highway going one mile an hour. By the time I reached the motel I was so tired and stressed that I picked a daffodil from motel property (surely a misdemeanor) put it in a water glass on the bedside table, and it helped, it really did. Today's drive was better, but when we stopped at CVS to buy necessities like single serving cereal boxes and Cadbury chocolate, I smelled the hyacinths before I saw them. So now I have a nice pot of purple hyacinths in my room. I've taken to always putting flowers in hotel rooms. Last time I was in New York I got orange tulips at the Korean grocery. They bring life to impersonal spaces.
Enjoy your weekend!
