Yesterday was a glorious, unforgettable afternoon. I went a bit overboard at the specialty Asian market, made a rainbow summer roll feast, and invited friends over for snacks and calligraphy. Simone and 7 year-old Polly were in from Paris, Helene and Oscar came up from Montepulciano, Melissa traveled from Arizon, Stacey from Cape Cod, Julie from Canada and Betty and 2 year-old Alma from around the corner. We frolicked in the sun, picked flowers in the courtyard, Betty gave the girls neon pink tattoos and we spent a leisurely few hours with ink, pens, flowers, strawberries and lots of chatting.
