arrived "safe and sound" here in the desert of Arizona,
via late afternoon postal delivery,
tucked inside the festively postmarked envelope
was a lovely little note...and
a extra special treat...
an original "Marianne" creation...WooHoo!
It was a
refreshingly cool, aqua blue mandala
splashed with fish, shells, and spirals of sparkle!
It will definitely act as a "bit of zen refreshment"
when the red hot Arizona heat kicks in.
This little package
had a long, long flight travelling across the sea
from the Netherlands.
It can now rest easy
in a special place in my heart and in my home.
Thanks, Marianne! :)
