Yellow is mango season. And the thick painted steps to the train station. Is the softest chair in the dining room right when the afternoon light falls. Are whispers in the weeds. Is enamle for my ears and a brooch for my chest. Are memories of the bright centred daisies in my dad's faraway garden. Is the sun. And the promise of summer, which edges closer day by day.


  1. We had 45 degrees here today, so I can't say I'm looking forward to much more of Summer! Especially not having an airconditioner.

    But those earrings are nice, aren't they. They make me smile! Afterall, yellow is a happy colour.

  2. Oh Alice thats awful! Its been pretty stinking hot around here too... I almost, almost jumped in the pool but opted for a cold cold shower, and glasses of watermelon blended with ice and rosewater :p It made me think of you... And now nice it would have been to have you here.

  3. WOW, it was hot today!

    But yellow is happy and optimistic and mangoes are yummy, so its all good :)

  4. I want to eat that mango so bad!
