Bright, semi-translucent brush strokes of cerise encircling a reverently aged ceremonial bowl filled with dry rose petals & draped with the appealing scent of well-oiled leather jingling in a noon-day horse paddock that’s been scattered about with fresh straw bedding & sprinkled here & there with cracked white pepper, sweet anise & citrus zest; & there you are, holding the warmth of crushed wild rosemary sprigs in your hand. Now go down, down into the bowl, deep down, into the swirling pool where you will revel within spicy layers of cinnamon & mulled ripe raspberry with chunks of fresh strawberry & ruby-red Tartarian cherry, & surely you will soon find yourself bouncing along in a horse-drawn caravan during the annual Romani pilgrimage to Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer. After all, Gypsies, Grenache & the French Camargue have been perfectly suited to each other ever since the Archbishop of Arles established a monastery there in the 6th century.
