i love the word. it has such an exotic sound. such an old world sound. though i probably wouldnt be that interested in drinking absinth, i like the nickname it has. the green fairy. something kind of magical about that.
of course i love green.
maybe it comes from being scots irish, but i doubt it. i think it comes from growing up among the evergreens, not far from the ocean. ah, my beloved ocean. green is such a quietly strong color.
