I went to see my friend (who stood me up for a long awaited dinner tonight) after spending another hour at the dentists. Last filling for a while I hope. The good thing is all the mercury is being replaced by white - much nicer. And there she was with her back turned to me, moving with the focus and unconscious expertise of a concert pianist. Making the perfect kebabs for some customer who couldn't possibly imagine the thought and skill that went into making their tasty snack. I moved over to the rotating meat thing, which smelled disgusting but was so warm, and as I chatted away I just watched her, amazed. I don't think I've ever seen her so centred, focused, dynamic. It was beautiful. She is so beautiful. I think they should put the wooden barrier that separates her magnificence from the public into the pizza oven so the punters can watch her. They could sell tickets. If only she could see herself. Her concentrated face, her surprised super quick smile, that warms my heart. Such a special girl this one!!! As you all already know. My beautiful friend Jade.

when we look at each other and see poetry, that is the beginning of peace.
