I write from Milwaukee amid a quick weekend visit with this half of the family and a few old friends, following a quick communion with the other half of the family in New Mexico in honor of one particular sister-in-law’s successful defense of a PhD dissertation on the evolutionary history of ocotillo plants and their relatives. All of this, while trying to pack and seal up the house for a very long time. In less than a week we have seen more friends and family than we can count on all of our fingers and toes. Pretty good.
Tonight, with a little luck, we shall board a plane to Paris as the start to our round-about route to Bangkok, where I will teach another journalism course with this remarkable guy, through this remarkable group.
Meanwhile, let me tell you about the cake above. I think a certain woman named Cathy must like me a rather lot because she made this incredible, rich, dense, not-too-sweet, bitter-chocolate-coffee gluten-free flourless cake. Again! For me! I have to thank Gluten-Free Goddess for this as well, as it is Karina’s amazing recipe. Try it. Even if you can eat wheat.
Bon voyage! Talk to you soon!
