How does a long deep cleansing breath

followed by settling into a tender moment

of pause sound right about now?

Because, oh, mama, I could use a quiet

spot of repose to still “my nerves”

as my grandmother used to say.

Beautiful timeless romantic feminine

interiors have a way of working their

magic on frazzled psyches and

scattered moods, so let’s turn to

the interiors genius of

Kay O’Toole and

E l e a n o r  C u m m i n g s

to usher us into the calm.

When the gorgeousness concludes,

I’ll meet you, kiss you twice thrice

then send you on your way…transformed.
