(After the rains, on Walloon. The water and sky sing together always here, beautiful songs.)

    Ah, Maureen, thanks for making me smile: the photographs, the quotes, the recipes, the stories — all keep me honest about my background and home state. I do love it here in San Francisco, but who says you can’t love two places………

    My sis, Jeanne Barr, said it all. We can, and do, love many places. Our father’s family was
    from Sweden. Beautiful quote.
