And They Will Be Simple

Some random images, on this day off, sorting through my collection of indelible moments and things that make me smile:

. a book of recipes for making fruit and herb liqueurs
. a cloth sachet fragrant with Parma violets
. Brodsky’s little book on Venice
. my cousin’s daughter’s sea glass hanging on a silver chain
. lavender salt
. a cockapoo
. the Rodin caryatids being washed with sponge and bucket
. the sound of the unseen goats
. the beads I keep meaning to string

And then this quote from Jack Kerouac’s The Dharma Bums:
“One day I will find the right words, and they will be simple.” 
Simple as those sea glass marbles, a handful of lovely washed-up orbs.
