Ode



For more money than I ever thought I could spend on sentiment I bought a lamp to end all lamps.
With its lovely glow the American Southwest is near. 
Joshua Tree is a breath away
and some of my lonely turns sweeter thinking of those cacti in sunset with that eternal quiet behind them.

I have known I wanted a stained glass lamp for years as my mentor Dr. James Brennan collected them endlessly.... I actually called upon him to advise my purchase from where he is lounging in heaven - it was most assuredly this lamp -
He would have said, "Garsh..." at its beauty...

It is huge.
It is breathtaking.
It is worth every penny.

And good on you for going for beauty for your heart. $$ can be made again, time cannot.

Ooooh what a lovely phrase "Money can be made again...time cannot."
Thanks for the kindness, as always :)
