There is more than the communion of bodies when bread is broken and wine drunk. –m.f.k. fisher
Food, friends and family are one way to celebrate life. Woven together with shared adventures, they become a story.
Since 1987, I have lived with my family in six countries on three continents. During our first years overseas, in Singapore, I discovered the writings of M.F.K. Fisher. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M._F._K._Fisher
Her stories about people, places, and food have influenced and mentored me since that time. Fisher’s imagery weaves food and life experiences with relationships. It’s an important mingling. We are nourished by good food. We are nurtured by friendship and love with the people in our lives. She believed in not simply writing for oneself. Instead, write toward someone, or something, you love.
Therein lies the thread to my own stories. Set in Singapore, Cyprus, Taiwan, Germany, Belgium, France, Latvia, Lebanon, Indonesia, Scotland, Spain, and America, I have tried to connect each one to family, or friends, or to a place where I experienced a moment worth sharing.
