Sensual Sunday – Ordinary Things

Half a glass of garnet colored wine on a sunlit table.

Childhood photos; blues fading leaving yellow to paint a thousand words.

Piles of chocolate chips collapsing softly into a rich molten puddle.

Freshly laundered sheets– snapping them open and stretching taught over the mattress.

The drape of a bias cut silk dress on a beautiful woman.

The smell of woodsmoke in my hair.

Steam rising from the roadway pavement after a cool summer rain.

Strawberry decorations on vintage juice glasses.

The way a diagonally cut sandwich triangle fits nicely in our hand and the satisfying first bite on the edge of the center of the longest plane.

The satisfying click of an pen lid snapping into place.

Glass marbles in a jar.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Havre de Inspiration

GraceTurretColorsWM

 

This is a corner building in Havre de Grace, Maryland.  I’ve always had a special place in my heart for Victorian inspired architecture, especially turrets.

My sweetheart took that photo then edited it to make it a little more magical.  It’s images like this that inspire me to write stories.

Havre de Grace is a lovely little town.  I recommend staying a weekend at a B&B or at a guest house.  There aren’t many, because it’s a tiny town, so book ahead.

Also, don’t forget to stop by Bomboy’s for some candy.

The last time we were there for a weekend we lucked upon an arts festival and acquired a lovely hammered copper spoon necklace and some handmade candles and soap.  As a sensualist things like handmade soaps and candles with their rich scents and lovely packaging make me happy the way tea parties and hot bubble baths do.  Not to mention, supporting small businesses and independent artists.  Winning!
