Sleepless In Savannah...

There once was a lady that lived in a cottage on the marsh and near the sea...
She fell madly in love with the moon and the night and all of its creatures...
Found serenity in the stillness and silence of the twilight hours...
She would productively work at hours when others found themselves dreaming...
She guarded the dreams of her loved ones as she created her own...

It's three in the morning and on my stove there is a beef stew with fresh vegetables stewing.
Cooking low and slow... The full bodied red wine and bay leaves linger in the air like a luxurious bouquet and I am transported to some Villa in the south of Spain... On a Winters night the smell of wood from the fireplace and the herbs that I've gather are drying by the fire they too join to dance with my stew...

I am right here ...
At home...  Sleepless but present.
I hope you are enjoying the holiday season...

Stay Sweet Peeps...
