So take the photographs/and still frames in yr mind
I really like the cookbook Apples for Jam. I have been looking through it this past week and salivating over some of the good ideas. My friend Kate brought over a scrumptious blueberry cake she made yesterday from the book. It was placed in front of us and the four children and three adults devoured it in moments. Last night I made a steak pie. I made it for Joe as it reminds him of a bit of UK food, but I placed a pastry F on the top of it and told Finn is was F pie. He ate like a starving person. I like baking more and more. I mean, I am not as afraid of making things from scratch like I used to be. Pie crust is really just a bunch of things squished together and cared for a bit right?I found this old giant picture ( it is like 3 ft long at least) when we moved into our old house. I Thought the frame was cool. It has grown on me even though it has never been on our walls. I think about the people and the faces in the photograph. It is old. I bet most of these kids are dead. A lot are very old. I think about what they thought about in this picture. How many dreams ran round their minds? Who had secrets? Who had demons? How did their lives unfold? I am thinking of calling Muskingum College and asking if they would like it...I wonder if they have an archive? Yeah, this photo makes me wonder...
