Tasting Notes
You sit among the night violets near a freshly fallen tree and stare up at the midnight sky, waiting. Scents of huckleberry, cinnamon plum and dusty stones hang in the air. The din of chattering campers in the distance diminishes as you cradle a mug of mocha to stay warm. You hear a pinecone fall and then nothing. Calmness spreads now throughout the valley allowing you to see the meaning which looms in the patterns of the stars.
