Isabella, my love...
Let's talk about Lavender. When I think of Lavender, I think of you. I think of our little room in Hannelore & Eberhard's lovely home in Barrington, New Hampshire. Hannelore's orange scarf draped beautifully over the table lamp. Lavender oil diffusing over a tea light candle. A rock salt lamp. Candles. You, in my body. You, almost here. You, in my arms. Sleeping. Ahh, your sweet, darling face.
Lavender. I think of yoga classes. Hovering above my students, my hands cupped and slathered in lavender oil. Letting them breathe it in before they are left in silence, in savasana.
I think of the Lavender we keep in the guest bedroom of our home here in Primrose Hill. I think of how it used to be so purple and how it is less so now. Now it is kind of slouching, its petals are more gray than purple, it simply seems sad... so, perhaps it needs more direct sunlight and less water? It is in a room with a north facing window. Perhaps we should move it to the kitchen, with its south facing window? Or, just move it outside for 4 hours in the morning when we water all the other plants?! Yes, that is the solution. We shall see. :)
I love you so.
P.S. Like this herb, you too need sunlight on your skin and face, wind in your hair, a sufficient amount of water... A little tender loving care. So, take care of yourself my love, my heart, my sweet girl.
