i'm pretty sure that everyone's lives would be made that much better if they had sisters like mine. Also, I am of the persuasion that my own life would be made more spectacular if my sisters and I lived near one another, but I'll take what I can get in the meanwhile.

This time's get was talking and walking around. Talking and walking, and then sitting and eating, is largely therapeutic if it's with the right people, you know. 

Eating wise, we squeezed in Mediterranean fare, including a really good tabbouleh, Russian tea and cakes, fish stew with a spicy salad, and a makeshift ramen bowl.

It is such a marvelous thing to be known and to know. And beyond that that, to know and be known while you grow and change. Because we are all heavily in that right now, aren't we? I'm a 30 year old who is extremely busy with the business of growing up. 

I'm finally making my way through Marilyn Robinson's 'Gilead' and I'll leave you with this sentence that jumped out at me the other day: "Existence seems to me now the most remarkable thing that could ever be imagined."


  1. I know exactly what those mediterrean food what i ate almost everyday while i was traveling in holy land.

  2. walking and talking and eating and resting with sisters is the very best

  3. sounds like good soul food for every part of the person. let's have a date to reflect on Gilead together. I loved it, will read it again and again in this lifetime.

  4. It is just enough to be able to see you all are growing beautiful.
