This morning we opened a melon.

Lately the melons have been incredible but this one had a weird flavor and no sweetness. So into the blender it went with a dozen squirts of agave nectar and a banana. Better. After it freezes we will shave it into bowls. Cantaloupe granita.

This is what I mean by function unexpectedly beautiful. This moment. Standing at the butcher block, tan arms holding a glass of color, a silver spoon, silver rings, and the slow pace of this day. I notice that I noticed. Pause... this mixture must be new and important. Look is your muse. She wears white, pale warm peach, golden brown. She is calm and graceful. She dances behind the beat. Design for her.
