March 13, 2002

circling around the reservoir on monday night, the windows rolled down and the nighttime air drifting inside, and i ask him, “is that jasmine?”

i already know the answer because i see a tree full with blossoms as we turn the corner.

“yes, i think so,” he says, and i nod and take a deep breath.


  • I'm Christine, and this is a slice of my life—a sweet, rich, wildly indulgent slice that would taste really good with a scoop of Breyers vanilla bean ice cream. Read more >>

  • I run a darling, friendly, little graphic design studio.
    I look on the bright side.
    I take photos. Lots of photos.
    I wish on stars and on websites.

  • I built my first web site 7 years ago and got 15 seconds of fame. (It changed my life.)
    I launched, then relaunched, an online magazine.
    I admitted to several embarrassing crushes.
    I consumed more bacon than any human should and lived to tell the tales.
