(the script)                                                              Mary Magdalene                                                   On meeting Jesus for the first time             

[excerpt  from]  ” Then He said in a low voice, “Go away now.  If this cypress tree is yours and you would not have me sit in its shadow, I will walk my way.”

And, I cried to Him and I said, “Master, come to my house.  I have incense to burn for you, and a silver basin for your feet.  Your are a stranger and yet not a stranger.  I entreat you, come to my house.”

Then He stood up and looked at me even as the seasons might look down upon the field, and He smiled.  And He said again:

“All men love you for themselves,  I love you for yourself.”

(The Story)

“Far away from the aggressive strife that prevailed in surrounding kingdoms, the Persians ate with slow, deliberate relish, pausing to breathe the jasmine-scented air, to listen to the birds settle for the night in the upper branches of the almond trees, to appreciate in the murmur of their private paradises this exquisite union they had wrought between  earth and heaven.”

Secrets of Saffron

— Pat Willard

An overworked and over paid and subsequently numb and burnt out New York City accountant, a city boy —  haplessly turned — farmer… meets  a real farmer. 

A SAFFRON farmer.

“I know it is wet and the sun is not sunny, but we can have lots of good fun that is funny.”
