    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    A bit surprising perfume choice, I thought it would be Gengis Khan or Balafre.

    HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DEAR HEDNIC!!!!

    Wishing you a joyous and fragrant day. And because Jon already came up with the best birthday pic ever, here it is again:

    freewheeling, Mexico City looks amazing! Thanks for sharing your fantastic photos.

    Happy birthday to hednic!

    I'm wearing the jasmine fragrance that I made for my Mom again this morning.

    Having a very stressful week...month actually. I just need the sale/purchase of my real estate to go through smoothly...Why does buying and selling a home have to be so damn stressful? Doing this all while at my work the people running the company are creating problems that don't exist and considering merging sales and marketing departments. I had to make my case for why it makes zero sense at a company like mine. Additionally, the head of sales is someone I could never work with...I could put personal differences aside if he provided value to the growth of the company or my career but I don't think he knows a single thing about what I do. Definitely trying to work through all of this without adding more grey hair to my head.

    Happy birthday, hednic!

    Cool pics, freewheeling; thanks for letting us visit Mexico City with you! Sure like their weather better than mine...

    Hang in there, Ryan! Yes, it's crazy how a positive change like a new home can be so stressful. I finally had to force an "it'll happen or it won't" attitude upon myself, I had my heart so set on this place (and, it did happen!). Logically, I knew if it didn't work out due to some snag, something else would. But practicing this attitude in the midst of it all is hard!! Work issues are even tougher, I think. Lol'd at "creating problems that don't exist"! We humans are fantastic at that. I know many of us can sympathize with your work problem, if any consolation at all!

    Cristalle EdP today. Just lovely on a partly sunny fall day.

    Hello all,

    It’s Day Two of Coromandel. Purr... it’s olfactory texture is “furry” in my experience.

    Ryan, so sorry for your work troubles. I wish you could just concentrate on being productive without the organizational and interpersonal distractions. Good luck on the real estate transaction.

    Happy birthday, Hednic. I hope the coming year is a good one!

    Have a good day.
    Note to self: Choose being kind over being right, and you’ll be right every time.
