We live in a world made up more of story than stuff. We are creatures of memory more than reminders, of love more than likes. Being attentive to the needs of others might not be the point of life, but it is the work of life. It can be messy, and painful, and almost impossibly difficult. But it is not something we give. It is what we get in exchange for having to die.
Jonathan Safran Foer
Speaking of story….memory….and love, I am happy to say that Loving Aunt Ruth is looking like it will have a 2014 release. More later!
Meanwhile, please know that Aunt Ruth and I treasured every blog visit, every comment, and your appreciation for her recipes both for living well and eating well. Aunt Ruth told me to appreciate everything, and while details evolve, I wanted you to know that she and I appreciate you.
We never felt alone. Thank you.
