Mama Says Rosettes
I’m in London, waiting for the next flight out. I’m literally typing while looking up at the board for Pisa to show Go To Gate. While reading the ‘Life of Pi’, which is a fabulous book by the way, I read a line that says “…the rosettes on a leopard’s skin” and I vividly recall the first time mama taught me that word. It was when I had to make a skirt for a home economics class, that I’m making small buds of red roses from ribbons, that mama says, “They’re called rosettes.” Beautiful word dont you think?
