Daylight wanes and a new energy pulses through the redwoods. As the lanterns are lit you take in scents of honeysuckle, lemongrass tea and shale. You are now dancing and laughing with mirth as you pass by a rustic dessert table. It is set with creme brulee and miniature vanilla spice cakes adorned with orange blossoms. Children run past snacking on jazz apples and dried pineapple and you smile with gratitude for the day.
