  2. Thanks for the comment! Ayla told me you were childhood friends, I think that's awesome!

    The name comes from a quote from one of my favorite authors, Tom Robbins:

    “Who knows how to make love stay? Tell love you are going to the Junior's Deli on Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn to pick up a cheesecake, and if love stays, it can have half. It will stay. Tell love you want a momento of it and obtain a lock of its hair. Burn the hair in a dime-store incense burner with yin/yang symbols on three sides. Face southwest. Talk fast over the burning hair in a convincingly exotic language. Remove the ashes of the burnt hair and use them to paint a mustache on your face. Find love. Tell it you are someone new. It will stay.
    Wake love up in the middle of the night. Tell it the world is on fire. Dash to the bedroom window and pee out of it. Casually return to bed and assure love that everything is going to be all right. Fall asleep. Love will be there in the morning.”

    I almost used it in my wedding vows because it was so whimsical and lovely but I chose a different Tom Robbins quote instead. Not much of a story but it is a great quote :)

    Thanks for stopping by!
