I probably should have kept this for Valentine's Day but when a shower of
petals fell from some roses which I bought earlier in the week I decided I
would put them to use before throwing them out.
It's a bit of a cliche really, implying memories of a lost love when in fact
the letter was one my mother wrote me when I was at Irish college
one summer but I thought the pink envelope suited the mood.
'Romance' is a piece of classical guitar music which my husband used to
play when we first met, in the days before I realised that he really prefers
squealing blues solos.
So, the message, I guess, is that things aren't always as they seem.
