A few days ago it was warm enough around these parts to take a long walk in the morning. By “warm enough” I mean that it was above 25 degrees. Like maybe it was 26 degrees. It was warm enough... Continue reading

Food I crave example numero uno: Bread. I’ve been trying to figure out a way to write about my confusing relationship with bread all day. For those of you who don’t immediately know what I mean when I say I... Continue reading

This morning I re-watched two of Amy Krause Rosenthal’s videos called “The Beckoning of Lovely”. The first one: and the third one I knew when I added “Make 41 beautiful things” to this year’s list that I’d been inspired by... Continue reading

Dont grow up too much! But a cooking class is a good one. If you go to Sur La Table dont forget to bring booze with you!

In theory, when there is something you want badly it ought to indicate a willingness to take whatever lengths necessary to make that thing happen. In reality, wanting and willingness are separate states of being and on their own are... Continue reading
