SP #4: Making lavender lemonade each morning to drink later that afternoon. 2 tablespoons of lavender sprigs in a cup of water, brought to boil and steeped for 15 minutes before adding 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of lemon juice. Cool, strain, add 4 cups of water, and refrigerate. Serve with ice cubes and a slice or two of lemon. (Haven't done it yet, but seriously considering SP 4.1 which might involve a splash or two of gin)
bioluminescence sparks outlining my every move. Light-producing micro-organisms make brilliant magic of the dark water, enhancing the mystery that night confers. Even as the water first startles, then soothes as my body releases the day's heat, my swimming body is illuminated fantastically, flashes bubbling up from each kick of my feet, each swirl of my hands. Delicious. Simply delicious.
Oh. No! There will be no illustration. . . .
