Roasting Plum Tomatoes
this time of year
i love to cook.
maybe it's the chilly
weather. yesterday i
roasted plum tomatoes.
slicing them in half,
drizzling them with
olive oil and then
sprinkling them with
coarse salt and pepper
and roasting them for a long, long, long time. they
become these highly concentrated, intense little
tomatoes and all you need with them for an
incredible meal is some italian bread, cheese and
red wine. yum.

A Great Teacher
Muriel. Over the months, we had frequent visits, and as I got to
know Gert, my respect and admiration for her quickly grew.
I learned so much by her example about what real love is, how
infinite patience can be, the strength of true commitment and
how to deal with loss. This quiet, gentle lady showed the
courage of a warrior and the heart of a saint. She always found
the beauty and joy around her and remained open to the
enjoyment of life, even on more difficult days. All of this
under one of life's most difficult of circumstances.
Gert has my ultimate respect and affection and will always
remain one of the few great teachers in my life. She will
always hold a place in my heart. "
I am posting this to remind you.
First day of preschool
It’s our daughter’s first day of preschool. I’m excited and nervous, as if I were the one beginning an education. And in a way, I am. For, even more than the first time we let someone else hold her, even more than the first time we let someone else watch her, her first day of school is the true beginning of our sending her out into the world and away from us. Nothing says Buddhism like raising a child. To cherish what has already changed as you look upon it. To hold most tightly what you must most let go.
