Back…and beat.

It seems like I’ve lived an age since I last saw you. So much has transpired it’s hard to know where to start. What did I do? I drove, drove, drove and drove some more. I consoled two friends whose son was killed in a car crash. I walked a creek bed in the shimmering light of dawn. I caught crayfish and turtles by hand. I baked a hundred cakes with a woman named Betty. I spun a giant roulette wheel until midnight. I made squash blossom pizza. I dabbed my wife’s forehead with a cool cloth after she fainted. I bought my first pink shirt (it’s actually light red). I visited a graveyard that has five generation of my ancestors in it. I listened to a new record by The Cars. I swam, I fished, I climbed, I ran, I sat in traffic, I went to meetings, I cooked outdoors…and now I’m completely exhausted.

But it’s great to be back!

  1. Sounds like you need a vacation to recover from your vacation. While you were gone, I went back through the recipe section and made a clafoutis with peaches instead of cherries. It might not be traditional, but it sure was delicious.

    1. I wish I could say it was a vacation! A heck of a lot of business travel and volunteer work is what it was. I hope I’ll get a vacation this summer. If I do, I’ll make your clafoutis!
