I pine for fresh vegetables like a long lost lover, especially this time of year when the farmers market is still so many months away. The snap of the pencil-thin spears made my heart sing. Their vital green was intoxicating.
With asparagus like this, I thought, it must be spring somewhere.

Here’s to dedicating ourselves to love, every day of the year. Happy Valentine’s Day.
I don’t post a lot of family pictures but once in a while there is one I just have to share. This picture is a perfect expression of our family life. We are blessed with an abundance of love, true interest in each other, and real, sweet affection. Zola’s smile says it all: life really is good.

A little Dylan for my one true love… Today, and everyday, I’m so glad you’re mine.

My love he speaks like silence / Without ideals or violence
He doesn’t have to say he’s faithful / Yet he’s true, like ice, like fire.
People carry roses / Make promises by the hour
My love he laughs like the flowers / Valentines can’t buy him.
(Love Minus Zero – Bob Dylan)
My dear friend Elizabeth always brings the love. But, on this visit home, she brought a little extra! His name is Soren. 9 weeks in the world with blue eyes as endless as the love that surrounds him. Welcome, sweet child.
