“Lucinda” Little drawer of curiosities. Fossils, petrified wood, bone, crystals.
Lucinda is a little drawer of curiosities, and she comes with a little story...
Lucinda likes long skirts and bare feet. "The better to feel the breeze and the earth both," she says. The animals in her woods go about their business even when she's near; they've long since learned there's nothing to fear from her. Oh, the squirrels can get tetchy with her from time to time when she forgets to put out an ear of corn, but isn't it a squirrel's nature to be a bit peevish? The herbs and vegetables in her garden always grow like they think they're weeds, leafing and bolting and vining and fruiting as though they worry they're about to be mowed down any minute now. She keeps reminding them they can take their time if they want, but they never listen to her. Anyway, she always has more than enough to feed herself and any friends that come along to visit.
Folks find they can never quite remember when she came to live in her little cottage there in the clearing, Lucinda with the long dark hair. She says she looks a bit young for her age, but she'll never tell you how old she is. Just a wink and a smile for anyone who asks.
