Of Food & Family

I write this blog because I eat: in and out. And when I eat I remember things. To hold strong a memory, I believe it should involve all my senses: sight, smell, taste, touch, sound.

A meal with my family around the table has all these components: my partner engaging our inquiring children, the garlic and chocolate from our meal. If you desire a memory to hold true for years to come, create a complete picture involving all of the senses and live in its moment with your whole self. The  memory will always find a quick path to your present.
