The Monday indigos.
When your blues are deeper than the usual Monday colours, and the smiles don't come easily. The habibi is off to Cairo for a week for work (and staying in a restored Egyptian palace), and I miss him.
Honeysuckle helps - if you haven't ever smelled this humble creeper, then you are missing something profound. We're lucky enough to have an enormous pergola covered with these blooms in our colony, and the fragrance when we walk past on balmy evenings is difficult to express; it is like floating in a scented cloud of romance, a perfumed dusk of dreams.
Come back soon and walk with me under the madhumalti, my love.
