the cuppa cuppa tree
this morning i was feeling scatterbrained and not much more than an occupant of space, and then i found out why! i was already hard at play somewhere else. i went over to bella's world to say hello, and to my great surprise discovered i was already there! i was dawdling on a tree swing, holding my treasured coffee cups and wearing my favorite rose and hat. bella even put me in the right place - surrounded by friends, but on the periphery, lost in my own world and gazing at something in the sky. just where i'm the happiest. bella is on the left, giggling over a big cuppa. ces, the brilliant abecedarian illustrator who has a fondness for tossing brightly colored dishes in trees, is celebrating over an even bigger cuppa in the middle.
thank you, bella, for this irreplaceable drawing and for sharing your talent and friendship with me. from now on, when i look at this picture, i will operate under the illusion that i'm as sweet as this girl in the cuppa cuppa tree.
