Close Your Eyes and Think of Spring
"A little Madness in the spring is wholesome even for the King." Emily Dickinson
A lovely book in a series of our favorite poets, you will find
Robert Frost and Langston Hughes along side Miss Dickinson.
And now for Mother......
"In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt". so get digging.
"I stuck my head out the window this morning and spring kissed me, bang in the face." Langston Hughes
"An optimist is the human personification of spring",
Susan J. Bissonette
and what better proof of optimism than the desire to make a perfect macaroon.
When I smell the scent of this pastry jewel I am swept to Paris, la Durée, and the elegant older women with their tiny dogs and handsome escorts.
"Spring is when Life's alive in everything",
