For all my Big Mama Bear histrionics, I am sometimes a right booby. The number of cells active in my brain seems to develop inversely proportional to the number of years I am clocking up in life. Sometimes I wonder whether I am actually suffering from early on-set Alzheimer.
But then I remember that I am not a junior anymore, and this isn’t *early* on-set at all. I am getting side-tracked. The point is: Thanks were more than overdue. I had received a really cool present last December – a hand-woven scarf made by fellow fan Monica. There are no excuses – it appears that I never said thank you. I didn’t post a picture of my lovely new neck adornment (even though I clearly remember intending to do so), and I didn’t mention my present anywhere. On top of that, a search in my e-mail inbox actually revealed that I had received two e-mails from Monica – and never even replied to that. Seriously. Not on! So when the inspiRAtion flash hit last week, I very quickly decided that some of the mini RAPSes needed to be sent as long-overdue offerings of thanks. And this one went to Monica:
Monica works in a spiritual vocation. Angels and atonemints seemed appropriate 😉
And the other side of the tin already hints at what is inside.
*doh* as does the background.
You can see that I was still kind of running on Steampunk steam… Monica had watched The Crucible, and this tin is meant as a little late souvenir of that unforgettable live experience.
The concept of fast food would probably have been alien to John Proctor. Mind you, the way he tucked into his food was pretty fast. Or maybe *he* is the fast food in question? What I was really searching for in my stash of ‘fridge poetry’, was the word ‘soul’. Because Richard is our soul food, right? Alas, there was no soul to be had. Only ‘fast’. *hmph*.
Monica can decide for herself. It’s hers now and she can take the magnet words out of the tin if she prefers. And the atonement of the tin lid really refers back to the RAPS maker – may this RAPS be a little thank you for your support and your generosity. Even if I am late in acknowledging it – I appreciate all the attention I receive from all of you. You are the soul of this blog. xx
