after guests, blown out
candles curl smudged, berried smoke
into the dimness
Sadly, I did not get as many pictures of Joy Stinger’s crafts as I wanted to as she was packing up for the day. And it would have been even better to get some pictures of her with them as one gets the sense that she would be intriguingly photogenic, but, alas, I am still a rather shy people photographer–OK, I suppose that only applies to people I don’t know.
This honey I bought is amazingly tasty. And, well, her ornaments and candles made of beeswax are always so pleasing to look at. For more info on Joy Stinger–her apropos name and why her city honey tastes better–check out this story in Feast Magazine.
