I absolutely l o v e what I do!
Just about everything associated with preparing food for the table is a joy for me.
Time spent looking through the lens of my camera or playing with the food,
watching where and how the light falls, thrills me.
Putting a meal on the table for those I love fills me.
I count myself as one most fortunate.

But I have a special appreciation for you…
you who show up here
to sample…to savor
and you who leave thoughtful words behind…
your time is precious…
Please know how deeply grateful for you I am!

May this day fill you completely!

That was so nice. Have a great Thanksgiving.
You and yours too Greg!
And we love what you do! I am thankful for you and all the gifts you bring to this world! Excited to celebrate with you, Ma. Happy Thanksgiving.
In Japanese there is a short pithy phrase, “kochira koso”, which says a lot and applies perfectly here. It means, although you are saying pleasing things about me, in actuality I am the one who should be praising you. I dare say I speak for all your readers when I say how grateful we are that you are investing so much time and energy in producing these beautiful pages filled with your words of wisdom, inspiring recipes, and wonderful images. Thank you so much for what you are giving of yourself to all of us.
Joe, thank you very much! I meant very sincerely what I said though. I love what I get to do here – and if it weren’t for the people who show up and take an interest, there’d be no reason for me to keep doing it. Still, to hear your appreciation expressed as you did makes me happy.
Your work is a blessing & a pleasure to experience, as Joseph so aptly stated. We reap the benefits of your following your passion!
What an extraordinarily beautiful photograph! And lovely words as well. Hope you and yours had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
Thanks Kathleen! We absolutely did!
