it makes me wonder, sometimes, about how much is worth it, and how much is unecessary clutter.
the smell of sassafras isn'tparticularly nice but you know it means you're about to make a lot of money. So that acrid, candyshop-burning-down fragrance releases a little endorphins and you feel your heart thump in your chest. Chemistry is riddled with leitmotifs of lost glory, fame and riches - You have to trade them sometimes for your continued freedom. Allow the batch to go to waste, flush the precursors and dust down the house while you wait for the forces of good(tm) to arrive and batter down your door.
if there's a bustle in your hedgerow, don't panic. just clean house and have a good excuse for that little jar or ergotamine in your drawer.
remember the thunder child.
