An e-messenger from "Diva Eva" on 4/9/09 brought news of my 1st ever lucky draw win. 10 days later, the wonderful array of finely crafted mini-wares arrived. They are all treasures but I must confess I have my favourites.
I love the sail boat. The little red boat which bore my name "Susan" beautifully handwritten in "miniscript" red . An amazing feat especially as I cannot write legibly.
I love the plate. An unusual decagon-al "antique"china with a "tree of life" decoration. So exquisite I can't bear to put anything on it.
But mostly I love the drum because I know Eva made this specially for my palace project.
Watch out, my dear Maya. I think Eva's Tabla may very well end up as Jai's constant companion. And there is a very good reason why. I will of course reveal the reason when the time is right.
Here's a clue and I am whispering this to you *looking behind to make sure there are no evesdroppers: The reason why I was absent for a month and the reason why I am back has quite a lot to do with Eva's Tabla. I can't wait to tell you all about it.....
