Gathering Madonnas


. loving the brief visit of rain
. wearing flannel
. gathering madonnas—by Perugino, Botticelli, and Piero della Francesca
. coming across a recipe for muscat grape tart
. baking sheep Amaretto cookies
. learning that centaur in the constellation Sagittarius, hunter with an artist's soul, was either a friend of Gilgamesh or son of Pan, raised with Muses
. placing meditation cushions in my story and behind my back this afternoon, while meditating on the Oliveira painting of sun rays, and then a Japanese maple
. giving my character Moroccan fried eggs for his breakfast, remembering the little place around the corner from us on Columbus in New York
. rereading The Professor's House, remembering how much I love Willa Cather
. learning about cooking with lemon leaves, apparently common in Italy
. counting my blessings
