Yesterday morning was dismal and gloomy - one of those days I'd rather continue journaling or sketching instead of heading out. But I had a Heart to Hand Illustrating Journaling class to teach and the participants are such an inspiration, so that made leaving in the dreary fog a little easier.
We were about 5 minutes from starting our session when a student from my last class, Enhancing Your Life with Herbs, walked in carrying a treasure - a beautiful block of rosemary soap - two toned with a scalloped design. The fragrance was immediately captivating - rosemary is a favorite! The little brown paper bag it came in was a gift in its self, stating that the rosemary would 'clear the mind and sharpen the memory."
Rosemary is for remembrance -
"There's rosemary. That's for remembrance. Pray you, love, remember."
~ William Shakespeare
