During my early 20s I had this habit that every time I sat down to write (school papers, poetry, whatever!) I had to have a bowl of those fruity gummies. You know, the ones that look like orange slices. If not, jelly bellys, licorice, or any type of sweet gummy. A scented glade cinnamon apple, or angel whisper, candle and Iced tea. Soft light. Bjork or Alanis playing softly helped, too.
Alanis and Iced Tea were a big help during ’03 — ’04 when I was madly in love, and wrote a letter per day. Sat at my kitchen table and wrote pages of letters… Then as I grew older, I switched Iced Tea for wine.
