Learning Curve

Notes once played by Chopin succumb to the desert heat
Notes once played by Chopin succumb to the desert heat

On my recent two-week trip to San Francisco I forgot to leave the air conditioner on. Its kind of mandatory this time of year to avoid damage to things.

After a week of 110+ temperatures my studio was quite warm when I returned. It took 15 hours to cool it back down. I had a package waiting from Amazon containing Vanilla and Almond Extract. When I unwrapped them the bottles were almost too hot to touch.

What I failed to notice for a couple of days were the candles in my gold candlesticks. They were from Point a la Ligne in Paris and had musical notes circling up the sides. One gave up, started to melt and fell to the floor. But the other one put up a fight. It stayed attached at the base and drooped into a lovely swan dive.
