{revisit} jitterbug perfume

for the second time in my life, i am reading jitterbug perfume by my favorite author in the universe, tom robbins...


i discovered tom robbins when i was seventeen. one twinkly summer night, a mischievous paramour left the classic still life with woodpecker on my windowsill...


after reading straight through it twice, i promptly purchased and read through every other tom robbins book that existed.

those beloved stories have traveled with me for two decades. they are sitting on my bookshelf right now. recently jitterbug perfume winked at me in a jaunty way as i strolled past, so i picked it up and am devouring it once again.

tom seems to love stardust almost as much as i do, so here's a serving for you from the brilliant mr. robbins...

ahh, Mr. Robbins. You picked a lovely quote. I think 'Skinny Legs and All' is my favorite, but it may be time to re-read them all :)
