My new red loveseat under an old poster project by my grandfather and a floating boat dreamed by a lifelong friend's daughter, now a friend herself. On the seat three cushions: a friend's gift, poppies from Venice and nasturtiums from Leonardo da V's manor house in France. On its right an antique sewing box from my mother's house and the old backgammon set she and I opened most evenings. To complete these lovely memories what I need now is a good movie, a
bottle glass of wine and M nestled in there close to me. . .
