Hello Friends —

Welcome to See. Food. Write.

Food is what binds us humans together. The act of preparing and sharing food with friends and guests is a most sacred gesture. Every time we take in a touch of food or drink, we make some holy communion with the organisms and natural elements which served as the vessels of our nourishment.

Come with me as I find the stories behind food and people. We’ll cook a little, laugh a little, and see, food, and write.

Stay tuned for the new website and the first few stories. They’re just simmering right now…

    The reminds me of the importance of taking a time out from our family’s busy schedule to pause, say our thank yous, and share a meal together.

      Eating is a social activity, and it can be the balm to our frazzled and disheveled days, to look at one another deeply and enjoy each other’s presence. We are nourished when we take in our food — and our family and companions.
