It’s officially summer here in INDIEana. The air is hot, heavy and humid — it feels like wrapping a wool blanket around your body while being locked in a hot tanning bed and trying to relax. I don’t care though, I missed the hot sunshine, the animals, the flowers and I even missed the baseball games where the kids are so excited to go but the only person really enjoying it to the fullest is Colette. She amuses herself so much that she amuses others.
Colette is like myself as a little girl only unbroken. She is filled with a lot of imagination, creativity and love to share. She had a bubble wand and walked up to every teenage picnic and family relaxing on blankets watching the game to offer her bubbles. She would make small talk about her princess face painting (just like Elsa!) and then proceed to invite them to watch her spectacular bubble wand do it’s magic. Everyone laughed and smiled. No one was too cool to say no. I know she will be famous one day if not just for her kind, inspiring and compassionate spirit. She can make a crowd smile like nothing else. (A few months ago when we went to the African American Art and Soul Festival she danced the dances they were doing on stage and the camera man stopped shooting the show to shoot her!)
Primroses have long been considered ‘fairy flowers’ in Ireland where they were believed to grant fairies the power of invisibility. Hanging a spray of primroses on your door is an invitation to the fae to enter your home and to draw fairy blessings. Plant primroses in your garden to attract fairies to it. In Indianapolis (aka OZ) the primroses go mad~ some yards and fields are solely primroses! They spread like mushrooms here and are so lovely and dainty.
XOXO, sunshine and bubbles!
