Nothing new at the moment, but I thought I’d give a head’s up that I will host a drawing here on the blog soon to celebrate something. 🙂 I will post about it, probably early next week.
We had 9 inches of rain last weekend! It was a weird storm because the north bay area had lots of rain while the south bay did not get much at all. It is a start though, during this drought.
I liked this interview of IFF perfumer Pascal Gaurin. When asked how long it takes to create a scent, he said, “It has taken me as short a time as three months, and as long as seven years. Ninety-nine percent of what I try goes nowhere; I’m aiming for that 1 percent that is my best effort. The process can be frustrating, but achieving that 1 percent is the reward. You’re chasing that smile on someone’s face, the reaction when they smell the end result.”
Chasing the smile is so true.
