Calling all Violets

I'm Nobody! Who are you?
Are you—Nobody—Too?
Then there's a pair of us!
Don't tell! they'd advertise—you know!

How dreary—to be—Somebody!
How public—like a Frog—
To tell one's name—the livelong June—
To an admiring Blog!
................Emily Dickenson (with one obvious liberty.)

I think the reason I love being non-commercial is because only a very specific group of people are drawn to me. These are subtle folk. They have no need to be the biggest, the brightest, just to have the finest.

I admire the Hawks that soar the blog and webspheres. If I were capable of that kind of high flying, I would join them. But I'm shy and secluded. Every once in a while I venture out of my own Ethereal Journey and take a look at what my associates and fellow aromaphiles are up to.

I have to confess tho, I love my tiny nook in the Floral Valley. It's just the right fit for me and my fragrance posse.

If you too, are a 'nobody' with a huge spirit and inner life and have a hankering for your own special perfume, give me a shout. We're small but mighty! Gail

Goddess Gail! I love the way you write! You are truly an artisan not only of scent but of the written word!
Your words flow like the clear blue waters of the Caribbean going over a waterfall of pure quartz crystal-slowly.
