Who am I honoring on tattoo Tuesday?

It’s the friends you can call up at 4 a.m. who matter. – Marlene Dietrich

I am very grateful for mine.





The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion,
who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement,
who can tolerate not knowing… not healing, not curing…
that is a friend who cares.

What am I drinking?

February 4, 2012

There was not a full moon (I checked) and I do not know how the planets were aligned, but this was a challenging week on many fronts.

Thanks to a good friend, last night I was drinking an enormous Manhattan, some good wine, and sharing a sumptuous meal featuring boneless pork ribs with onions, garlic, fresh rosemary and heavy cream.  This is a dish I will add to my list of treasures.  I did not take a picture, but I will next time.

Of course, we could have been eating baloney sandwiches and beer.  It was the conversation with someone I trust that made all the difference.

Like this only bigger.
