the morning after

Sometime during yesterday evening, Alice suggested that I might extinguish this candle, burning bright in a candle-holder that I bought in Durham, NC.  Probably it was a candle holder meant for a tea-light - certainly, this red wax leapt its bounds, and looks like an ectoplasmic hand.  That water (reflecting the trees, rather than full of mushy leafy stuff) doesn't signify rain (alas - it was punishingly hot today), but rather, plant watering.  The majolica urn - courtesy, a month or so back, of Santa Fe Greenhouses' generous discounting at their summer sale.  In other words - plenty of opportunity to reflect, this week, on all the pleasurable ordinariness involved in being here ...
