An olfactory musing on solitude and inward journey. A single glass of dark merlot wine, a warm cashmere blanket, curls of meditative incense, and the subtle perfume of a single fresh peony in a bedside vase.

"Don't surrender your loneliness so quickly
let it cut more deep.

Let it ferment and season you
as few human or even divine ingredients can

Something missing in my heart tonight
has made my eyes so soft
my voice so tender
my need of god
absolutely clear."

--Hafiz, 14th century

Art: Lady of the Harem by Édouard Louis Dubufe, c.1880
