Sweet Dreams

"I would stand transfixed before the windows of the confectioners' shops,
fascinated by the luminous sparkle of candied fruits,
the cloudy lustre of jellies,
the kaleidoscope inflorescence of acidulated fruitdrops
-- red, green, orange, violet: I coveted the colours themselves
as much as the pleasure they promised me."

Simone de Beauvoir (1908-1986) French Existentialist, writer

Beautiful photo and quote. I just enjoyed a few of those fancy jelly beans the other day at a work meeting. They are dangerous!
