When I asked Chris how things were going in Colombia, he wrote me with this: "Forget April showers, Medellin has flowers growing year round, and in great quantity." OK, I said, but how is the art going? What are you working on? Are you finding good materials? Did you start working on a collection for Kiosk yet? He replied, "Besides textiles, one of La Ciudad de la Eterna Primavera's (or the City of Eternal Spring’s) greatest exports is cut flowers." Super, super, I said, but how about the work? And why are you telling me about flowers? His reply was, "For this reason: Medellin has an abundance of floral teas, not to mention markets overflowing with bundles of goldenrod and roses." After that I stopped sending him emails for a while. He simply was not making sense. What in the world is going on in Colombia? I thought. Damn, I have to get down there. Before I booked my ticket, a care package arrived in the mail, there was a mug, and this tea, and a note from Chris: "Calendula has traditionally been used to relieve abdominal pain and constipation. Oh, and enjoy the mug." Ah, ok... I had better make a trip down to Colombia.
