The Currant Lemon-Thyme Journey Begins
I said I would send a book. Tomorrow it will be on its way.
Why not name the book's journey? That seemed fitting.
So I considered... what is growing in my yard now? Currants, lemon-thyme, buttercups and sage. Ah, The Currant Lemon-Thyme Journey. A little fancy, but why not?
I arrange herbs, leaves, flowers on top of wax paper, fold it over, tuck it in— after I sign a page to the first person on the journey. The book will move on, but the little bits of my yard can be kept, a memory of words and affection passing through.
I hope that each person along these travels will not only sign the book but also send a keepsake to the next reader. Something simple from her yard.
And so, the journey begins.
