December 31st, 2008

Several years ago, I threw a New Year’s Eve party with one of my very best friends, a creative soul mate with whom I later shared a transatlantic blog. We put together a little booklet based on the 5 senses to give our guests: our favorite scents, our favorite music, our favorite blogs, etc. My post tonight is an homage to that party:

Tonight’s Scent: the wood smoke from an outdoor fire at a back yard oyster roast on a South Carolina island on New Year’s Eve.
Tonight’s Taste: salty ocean juice bathing the oysters pried open to yield their secrets.
Tonight’s Sound: fireworks exploding in my neighborhood–begone evil spirits!
Tonight’s Touch: the soft hug of my North Face down jacket on a chilly night.
Tonight’s Sight: a gold sickle moon hanging in the sky like a dream boat to carry us out of ‘o8 into ’09. 
Happy New Year!

    Lovely! may the new year bring the opportunity to create, to love, to accept, to tolerate and above all, to grow to all of us. And the chance to discover the best chocolate we have yet to taste.
