“Champagne arrived in flûtes on trays, and we emptied them with gladness in our hearts... for when feasts are laid and classical music is played, where champagne is drunk once the sun has sunk and the season of summer is alive in spicy bloom, and beautiful women fill the room, and are generous with laughter and smiles... these things fill men's hearts with joy and remind one that life’s bounty is not always fleeting but can be captured, and enjoyed. It is in writing about this scene that I relive this night in my soul.”
love that quote! such a lovely fantasy world... magical... even, without faeries... ,-) and certainly filled with whimsey... ,-)
just read the words; "...fill men's hearts with joy..."
those silly men, don't even consider the feelings of the "...beautiful women..."... who are; "...generous with laughter and smiles..."
oh well, it's still a pretty mind picture... :-))))
...and then, there is the afternoon garden party. but this one is a tea party. interesting how the lone male, is so outnumbered... ,-)
and a just-plain-old-fashioned-garden-party!!!
"Ok, Ok, I couldn't help myself but make an Old Fashioned Cream Cheese Pound Cake!
