Elder God Jam

Several months ago, I received a parcel in the mail from hillbillie. Nestled deep within a fortune's worth of plastic grocery bags were glass jars of her homemade elderberry jam. She had hand-gathered the berries from high in the San Bernardino mountains. I was eager to try the jam, but wanted to share the experience with Sandy. So, I took a jar to his place. Instead of opening it together, he dumped me, so I brought it back. Whenever I looked at the jar, I was filled with sadness, so I hid the jam at the back of my refrigerator.

Today, I took out a jar and opened it. The scent filled the room, like a combination of citrus and raspberries and sunshine. It reminded me of my visit to the mountains with hillbillie. It was very good.
