A Luminous Halo

"Life is not a series of gig lamps symmetrically arranged; life is a luminous halo, a semi-transparent envelope surrounding us from the beginning of consciousness to the end." --Virginia Woolf

Steward of the Pascal Emory house, an 1871 Second-Empire Victorian; of Sylvie, a 1974 Mercedes-Benz 450SL; and of Taz, a purebred Cockador who sets the standard for her breed. Happy enough for the present in Massachusetts, but always looking East.

What I Had for Lunch Today: Mushroom Soup

To make this soup, I cooked a sliced onion in butter till golden, then added a dozen or so mushrooms, also sliced. Then a couple of diced potatoes and water just to cover. I simmered this with a bit of savory, thyme, parsley, salt and pepper just till the potaoes were tender. I topped the soup with light cream and a little soymilk. I ate it with buttered Polish rye bread toast.
