MONDAY MONDAY AND LOVE & PASSION POEM #11

Bbbrrrr! it is wickedly cold here in Connecticut. As I am getting older I am really hating the cold weather. I know it is Connecticut, but, still I can't stand it. I am thinking seriously about another part of the country that has more warmth than cold. Although Connecticut of late has been pretty mild, really unseasonably warm, just not today and I suspect according to the weather folks not tomorrow either. Brrrr....aaargh!

Yesterday after Church JB hosted a Valentine's Day luncheon with catfish and talapia, collard greens, potato salad, cornbread, green tossed salad...all done neo soul, meaning without dairy and pork fat, all very healthy and lovingly prepared. Also blueberry cobbler and the kids made Valentine's Day cookies! It was a rich and powerful day spent with a Sister-friend and her family that was not only restorative to my being, but also restorative to my children. It was one of the best days ever.

Maya Angelou
Come. And Be My Baby

The highway is full of big cars
going nowhere fast
And folks is smoking anything that'll burn
Some people wrap their lives around a cocktail glass
And you sit wondering
where you're going to turn.
I got it.
Come. And be my baby.

Some prophets say the world is gonna end tomorrow
But others say we've got a week or two
The paper is full of every kind of blooming horror
And you sit wondering
What you're gonna do.
I got it.
Come. And be my baby.

Hey Don,

Yes it was delicious! There were snow flurries outside and the wind was kicking up! There is something enchanting about good food, good friends and fabulous conversations.
