smells and shadows

-The strong, pungent smell of the Farmer's Market as I enter. It smells like a combination of coffee and spices. It's a wonderful place where I find the most obscure fruit, wines and vegetables. I always hear at least three different languages being spoken around me.

-Receiving my first Christmas card from my parents' minister. She even included a little gift.

-Tree shadows painted onto the wall outside my apartment. When I first moved in, I loved the wall, with its red Georgia clay staining that makes it whisper of Tuscany.

Coffee and spices. Coffee and spices. If I think about it walking in, maybe I'll smell that too. All I ever smell is fish!!! :) Thank God for your graceful optimism.

Well, maybe there is a fishy undertone. Whatever it is, I can't really tell if it's a good smell or not. But no place else smells like it, that's for sure.

What did your Parent's minister include? I'm curious!
