It’s been nearly a year since I wrote my Why We Cook post. And it seems as though this journey is about to come full circle. It’s essentially been a year of borrowed time that looks to be coming to an end. But I once again have an opportunity to be present in person and let the Universe guide me to where I need to be, when I need to be there.
The notion of preparing what could be my father’s last birthday dinner is heartbreaking. But it’s also a gift, an opportunity to celebrate him while he’s here to witness it. I fear that I may not find any words and hope that the act of simply being there and giving of myself in the one way that I truly know how will be enough.
I am getting on a plane today but I can’t say how long the final steps on this journey will take. Or how long it will be before I find my way back into the kitchen once it is over. To steal a line from my post last year…There are still new posts scheduled to go live here at BAH for a while, as well as all of the Exit 51 archives on Flashback Friday. And I hope to be back soon to cooking and writing and commenting and following along with your adventures. Until then, Bon Appetit Hon.
