The Reluctant Cook

Most of my friends love to cook. There’s Susie (my Martha Stewart) who collects cookbooks like Lindsay Lohan collects mugshots, and she actually uses them. Dinner at her house is always festive, and I acknowledge and appreciate her creative culinary talents. Then there’s Kim, who can remember everything she’s ever ate. I’m not kidding, she… Read More ›

One of Kim’s requirements of camping is that we always get a… Read More ›

The Sun Never Says, by Hafiz

Even after all this time, the sun never says to the earth, “You owe me.” Look what happens with a love like that. It lights the whole sky.
