To counter the long deep freeze and sometimes grey skies of this Ontario winter:

1) boil the skins of onions
2) prepare a lovely silk mordanted with alum and submerge it in your onion “broth”
onion skins

you’ll have a warming sunny yellow,
the yellow of lemons,
the yellow of spring daffodils

3)  smile in the back of your eyes & it will move into your hands and feet
