I confess I'm infatuated with red right now. I wearing it, I'm painting with it and I finally ordered a huge hunk of red fabric. (Which red to buy is another long story. Do you know how many reds there are in the Kona Solids collection?)

Valentines, poppies, winter sweaters, apples, chilies, Christmas lights, shoes, cherries, Japanese maple leaves, the walls in my aunt's sitting room, lacquer bowls, lava, sealing wax, lobsters, my new short corduroy skirt, some baseball team, Lego bricks, roses, Chinese lanterns, nail polish, Coke cans.

I want to glow red.
