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: Minestrone with Sperlonga

Ali made this soup, and it was full of vegetables, but beyond that I can't say much about its creation. I jazzed it up with a typical Italian garnish of butter, Parmesan, and fresh parsley snipped from my garden...plus a dusting of cayenne pepper. I ate it with some of Whole Foods' fabulous sperlonga.
