Midsummer snaps from Instagram and beyond: learning to make a tagine from this skilled chef in her dream kitchen upstate; the world's most perfect bagel, found at my neighborhood coffee shop (though that's an oft-debated subject); and a couple in honor of Father's Day, and my niece turning seven. For those wondering about the taped-up words: one is an excerpt from a poem I've loved for years; the other is a favorite line from e.e. cummings — your head is a living forest full of songbirds.
Max, and his family follow on Wednesday. Then on Friday, we'll leave together for two weeks in Tuscany and Amsterdam. (Any travel recommendations, if you have them, would be so very much appreciated!)
In the meantime, I'll be back here Monday — I'm planning to have Recommended Reading, Non-Career Advice, and a POV up before I leave!
