It’s been a busy August, but that’s what tomatoes are for … to overwhelm you with their abundance and color and “eat me now!”-ness. Friends took a breather with me Monday night, and we had the real communion of food … Continue reading

After the feast …

When you come near enough to another human being to place a piece of bread in her hand, to give her the cup to drink, to look into her eyes and see God’s own light shining from her soul … you see, and are seen.
