One little drop.

Grateful Desert Apothecary, Herb Shop and Eco Market, Joshua Tree, CA

Day 7 — Book Writing/Birthday Month

“One little drop can change everything,” she said,

As she squeezes the bulb of the vial

Of the oil into a glass bottle.

Scents I chose from the apothecary shelves evoke the following sense memory:

My kitchen

Lust

The woods

My Mom

My Grandmother

Fresh sheets

Sweet oranges

all to be blended into a scent of my own.

“One drop or thirty?” She asked, “this one can be as little or as much as you choose.”

“Five,” I say, watching her mix my elixir.

I think, how many drops, looks, laughs, sighs, of someone else’s

have changed everything for me?

Have I paid attention?

Do I remember?

How many of my drops, looks, laughs, sighs

Have changed someone else.

Did they know?

One drop.

Changes history

The world.

All of us

Intertwined

Infinite.

So we change

So we grow.

Let it drop.

(and yes, sometimes like it’s hot).

Thank you for giving that little heart below a nudge if you liked this. :)
