“And now the sun is set free”
As Paul Eluard said Imagine the dawn of a summer’s day in Tuscany. The sky is purple and gold, heralding the break of another long, lazy day. In the distance, the gentle contours of a hill, caressed by the fickle breeze… and on that hill, an orchard, tucked beneath the walls of a thousand year old village. The sun rises and everything is bathed in a shimmering renaissance light, harbinger of harmony. The earth smiles back, newly touched with beauty. You sleep on in your linen sheets. But now, delicate tendrils of sunlight tickle your eyelids, and your senses stir. You reach down to the blue glass bowl on the floor beside the bed. Feeling around, your fingers close over a ripe plum.
