Yesterday we went to Judi’s Place, a family restaurant here in Oostburg, Wisconsin, for breakfast. They had a table for us, and the food and service were excellent as always. I looked around, and remembered sitting in different places over the years – and the conversations and what was happening then. Work, new projects, family history, health, losses and new beginnings. A good meal is a blessing.

I have been watching PBS Food Shows. This week I watched Lidia Celebrates America: The Return of the Artisans. They spoke of the time and dedication it takes to learn, and the five senses were mentioned – as we also think about when creating poems. There is a lot of work that takes place before an art feels more intuitive. I like seeing so many artisans and art forms honored.
We also have enjoyed a few meals at Casa Imelda, a new restaurant in Cedar Grove, Wisconsin. Wonderful food and service.
We have so much in common, and so much to learn.
Many memories – and everyday life. Christmas today in a simple way.
