The moon is the queen, sky mother The sun is the king, sky father They love and they need each other I pray, seeking to uncover The secrets of their true wonder How they shine, oh, so brilliantly How they love us, yes, distantly They make love during their eclipse See the bright touching of their lips Their love endures, persistently
Every Saturday, Rachel and I walk over to a coffee shop in our neighborhood. It’s become a nice weekend ritual for us. The place has great coffee and crepes and the added bonus of giving us free treats for Nico! Dogs are so smart – Nico seems to sense we’re heading for the shop and knows the treats are coming.
Lately, he’s been struggling on the walks because it’s been so hot. So, we need to take some water with us so he can take a drink every so often. Anything to get him his beloved treats!
Today I wanted to bring you a photo of my family’s old farm. These 250 acres of the family farm land in Pelham, TN, is where I spent a lot of my time growing up and where I learned a lot about food. My Mutsi had a tiny vineyard where we could pick the grapes to make jam. My Papa had a little garden out front where we could collect veggies for our salads and other side dishes.
