~ a ' good-bye ' tart... . .



a  ' t a r t '  as

.... . .  good-bye ?
*

this passionate
" e d i b l e " 
offered as my token of farewell... .   .

to a person ?
to a chapter ?
. ... a dream ?

a tart made of
everything i hold dear.
everything that's  " me "  to offer ~

~ these sweet, fresh blueberries
warmed gently in my own rose glaze...

perched on top of a lovely lemon custard...

cradled by a strong enough 
yet gentle & crumbling sweet crust
made with a fresh herb and a pinch 
of white pepper for spice,
then adding nuts for
 ground and strength and texture...

presented humbly in a brown parchment paper cup,
surrounded with another cup of color.
 color, that i can't seem to do without...

finished with, and nestled in, and crowned in
 more petals.
*

so, there it is.
me, given, as one single bite.
. ...cause i just don't know how to do it any other way ~

as the songs say.... .

*   baby i give you my world... .
you can go your own way... .
you can call it another day... .


*   is this real?
is this just fantasy?
nothing really matters...
. ......any way the wind blows ~
the beautiful flip side of this record is :

hello.... .   . ? !

hello to a new chapter?
hello to a new mountain top view?
to my own new  'hell drive' ?

( ~ " moth to a flame " comes to mind here... . ? )

~ so always i ask:
what  "g i f t " did i get to unwrap here ?

and then.... .
what do i now offer in return ?

~ h e l l o !
bring it.... .    .

( . ..ok, so where's that xxxxxxx screenplay template ? )

.....purely delightful ~*

this time i put in a ' fresh ' floral installation  as backdrop for the new merchandise ~ ~ *
i started out with  just a few sprigs of fresh ranunculus blooms & some flowering greens gently hung by ribbons and colored string with a backdrop of just cut blossoming branches  suspended horizontally behind ~ * ~ * such a nice, new energy of the fresh florals to be in the mix and part of the props this time.
.... it's like having a friend there creating the Vision with me ~*

~ jasmine tarts......

~ the sweet, intoxicating scent of Jasmine flowers* ... .  one of the first blooms of the spring !
i love this Jasmine and just want to roll in it and eat it and.... . Become it ~* !
i end up making anything i can think of out of it ~! first, of course... . is a Tart ~ * you know, i've come to love my limitations, as they keep things and decisions so comfortingly simple.
so...... i have just ~1~ lonely pear  in the fruit bowl on the table &  a few berries in the fridge.
then i noticed another first bloom... . my striped rose ~* . ... so that had to get tucked in for a bit of taste and color. the sweet pear sliced very thin to show off the beautiful seeds & core hiding inside. ~ sprinkle, sprinkle, sprinkle ..... .   . and there you go, a true Feast for the eyes, palate & soul ~ *
~ be sure to make some Jasmine sugar to use for everything ... .
. ......... and bake ~ * ~ so sweeeeet !
