I Need to Take a Picture

IMG_5011


It was beautiful. The glistening slivers of hot pepper. The freckle of black pepper. Ribbons of parsley, dwarfed by a nest of fettuccine.


I need to take a picture.


It was then that I felt myself—and now, writing this.

    1. And to not take it for granted. It is everything—especially now.

  5. Tracy: I've missed you. Your writing is so "vital", full of life, everyday life. It's like being there, peeking into your window (I wonder if you sense that)

  6. That pasta looks homemade. I wonder how many minutes it remained on the plate. I would have wolfed it down. It looks perfectly wonderful. Keep at it! We want to see more.

    1. It's a mix of Barilla and De Cecco. It was gone moments after the photo was taken. Yes, we wolfed :)
