Three years ago I broke up with the man I thought I was going to marry. It was a gut feeling--a sense I couldn't really put into words, that it wasn't quite right. Looking into his eyes and saying, "I love you, but it's not enough" were some of the hardest words I've uttered. He moved out and I was a vegetable for a period of time that felt like eternity. And then one day I got up and went into the kitchen and started making pasta. Hand-rolled, egg yolk pasta. I found so much solace in the dough. I made so much pasta those first few months I was giving it away to neighbors--anyone who wanted it (and some I'm sure who did not!)When life gets messy and hard, I crawl into the kitchen and get my hands messier. Feeding my stomach (and those stomachs around me) feeds the soul. It doesn't take away pain or disappointment, but it numbs it for a while and reminds us of the renewal of life-the sun will keep on rising, our hearts will keep beating and our stomachs will find hunger again.

Jennie, I live on Cape Cod and I've watched that sunset a million times--each time I'm amazed at how quickly the burning light dips below the horizon. I absolutely ache for you. I don't even know you and the sadness is palpable. I am sending you love and light. Know we are all with you in spirit.
