I finally know it is a real place. Attainable, achievable, touchable.
candles with blue wax, oranges, italian cookies.
walking when it's just slightly raining.
feeling a presence, feeling present, feeling your presence.
thinking about her glass legs.
writing something fiction, reading something fiction, painting for three hours straight.
constructing a mask, wearing a mask, painting the pieces (the layers of a mask).
walking around at night. writing to you. getting letters. finally feeling calm.
under a barrage of rain.
waking up early and knowing.
hearing good poetry.
being thankful, being quiet, being silly.
elderberries, daddy's peach jam.
