During my very intense prayer session however brief, a distinct feeling that pure orange everything is good for healing?  Orange neroli is what I have in mind, of the utmost heady intoxicating sensory happiness.  A vision of orange satsuma oranges to blood oranges and even the Buddha sculpture oddity of a grapefruit nature did  not come to me as a cure fer what ails ya!  I know that this makes no sense.

I am back to health after being seduced by sexy music all day.  Seems like it’s so trivial but who cares.  Music is one of the greatest pleasures.

Leaving Finland at the age of two, Maila would move with her family to the United States of America. After high school, she quickly gathered up her possessions and moved to Los Angeles in pursuit of the dream!

Echoes of innocence




There’s nothing like a flowery fragrance review to make you vow never to touch the stuff for the rest of your life, so I’ll spare you, but it is a sacrifice. There are lots of words I’ve read in books that I can’t use in everyday speech, largely because I’m not sure how to pronounce them, and I am kind of dying to tell you about a dark, mysterious woman supine upon a portmanteau, crenellated athenaeum in the distance, odiferous censer betwixt . . .sorry.
