As a New Yorker, Opera Chic wants to remember Big Luciano, a huge NYC
lover, walking down Central Park South -- where he still keeps an
apartment -- in the wintertime, right before Xmas, his golden voice
wrapped in layer upon layer of the silk scarves he loved so much and he
considered his lucky charms, a smile on his face, and all that
wonderful music ready to be created by his voice.
And the stars were shining,
and the earth smelled sweet,
the garden gate scraped,
and a step brushed the sand.
She came in, fragrant,
and fell into my arms.
Oh! sweetest of kisses, oh! languorous caresses,
while I trembled as I loosed her lovely features concealed by her mantle!
My dream of love has vanished for ever,
The moment has passed, and I die in despair!
And I never have loved life so much!
Matcha is a Japanese powdered green tea. It can be used as an ingredient or made as a tea. With matcha, whole
tealeaves are consumed, not just the steep off tealeaves, as with other
teas. High-grade matcha is made in limited amounts in
Japan, harvested only once a year in the Spring.
