Lemon inspires a peaceful happiness of confidence, creativity, and delight.
Cast your mind back to bedtime stories. The moment a tiny human demands a creation just of your making. Some tale conjured by the magic of your mind.
Deceptively easy, it inspires dread maths exam level dread, and you stumble and fluster at the thought.
Close your eyes and inhale the lemon…
What do we see, suddenly taking to centre stage?
Is it a griffin paying chess with a princess?
Are there rainbows, unicorns and dragons breathing fire?
For lemon makes the mind sparkle with possibilities.
We come eloquent, hopeful, and full of light.
Just for a moment, reality seems to back away as we recognise the playful child we used to be. Allowing the youngster to come forward, strangely worries and inhibitions seem to disappear, transported away on sweet citrus clouds.
