    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Good morning all !. Thunderstorms and heavy downpours overnight !. Remains to be seen if the garden will rejuvenate but we'll take anything we can get at the moment.

    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..."

    Yes, the news media is on a little time-out at my house, too. I figured out a long time ago that a periodic break just makes me a healthier person, and I've read some studies that showed it makes us happier. These studies were of course done in different times (which seem a lifetime ago now) and didn't take into consideration those times when there are things we need to know. Still, I think there's a way to balance it somewhere in there, between happy and informed.

    teardrop, just wanted to say, this is an exciting time for iris shopping (though I do wish I could just drive a load to you!)! You have choices from the charming heirlooms to brand new varieties constantly coming out. Some of the new ones are almost psychedelic in appearance with some being multicolored; vivid and gorgeous! Some lovely true blues out there, too. Starting all over would be fun!

    Chanel 1957-scented hugs to everyone!

    Hello all,

    I'm wearing Diptyque Philosykos today.

    I don't mind watching the news; I think it's interesting. I take small time outs now and then but otherwise choose to stay engaged. I am a history geek so current events seem significant to me. I just thought I'd throw in a different perspective.

    I'm a newshound and a history major, but I absolutely understand the need to keep one's equilibrium in challenging times - it's vital for ones mental and emotional health. We certainly need balance in our lives, so I feel no qualms whatever about chatting about gardens and perfumes in the midst of ongoing crisis as long as one keeps ones head up.

    We all know the famous Chinese curse, "May you live in interesting times". I had hoped to live a lifetime without a major historical event, but that is not going to be the case.

    I completely agree with everything you stated!

    For me, historical perspective is psychologically therapeutic. It makes seemingly random occurrences make sense.
