Postcard from Up North

Walloon Lake, summer night.

Wish you were here.

(This must be real if it looks this good taken with my phone.)

    As I bask in the transcendentalism of this photograph, I am reminded of your other lovely photos of food and its intimate preparations and I think about Home — Home as a place on a map and a place in the heart and how food, family and nature can evoke that sense of rooted belonging. It’s a shame that you were never able to make it on Sunday mornings with Tom and me. I’m certain it would have been a delight to meet you. When you have a moment, please consider looking through my Facebook page titled “San Francisco Sunrise Walking Tours” — I too am looking for ways to savor the experience of food, place and community. 🙂 Keep all of this up! It’s great!!

      Andrea, it’s you! Well I’ve heard so many nice things, and I’m sorry that we didn’t meet in SF. Your walking tours page is wonderful and has made me good and homesick for my San Francisco. Thank you for your kind and insightful words about food, family and nature…so true, the rootedness we crave. Please keep in touch! Give Tom a hug for me on Sunday.

    Happy sigh. (That’s what this photo makes me feel.)
