Addition and Subtraction

There was a time when I set the table for two

or for four.

Nowadays, sometimes I set it for five

and sometimes for three.

I suppose there might come a time

when I set it for six...

but I won't worry about that now.

Where do you get the inspiration for your posts?

Because so often they are inspired!

in time you may set it for 7 or 8, and then have the chance to buy even more gorgeous bowls and cups. xx

You come up with the most wonderful thoughts Alice. And I'm sure your table is always beautifully set.

I think that's best.

And I do appreciate the way you can take, what would be for me, crazy ranting thoughts that obsess me, and turn them into pure poetry.

I love your porcelain and ceramics. What an interesting reflection.
