Feeling Quiet Today . . .

Friends are coming over for dinner . . . heating up tamales, making some black beans with mangoes, and some steamed kale and chard with feta to go with . . . I like a lot of flavors. Imagining myself sitting quietly with a small glass of wine, just watching them talk and eat and laugh. Very happy. Maybe I'll make a pear-apple crumble, too.

And what's better on a quiet, rainy, introverted day than cooking and poetry? Here's another bit of word art from my poetry truck, The Blank Canvas, a proud member of the Portland Poetry Posse with Trixie the Poetry Car.


And a query I cannot begin to answer . . .

I had tamales for breakfast. And lunch, to be perfectly honest. Luscious tamales, homemade in a near West Side kitchen which probably conforms to no health standard in the annals of public hygiene. Really one of the most perfect foods ever created...
