September gone


Thank everyone who calls out your faults, your anger, your impatience, your egotism; do this consciously, voluntarily. -Jean Toomer, poet and novelist (1894-1967)

I who suffer from anger and impatience – but absolutely no egotism, no, I’m the most selfless of women – find this a difficult but important concept.

And … the plural of geranium, for those of you who want to know, is geraniums. Thanks to Bruce and, of course, the infinite wisdom of Google.

A stunning day here, fresh and warm. I don’t want to die. I want to enjoy Septembers forever.
