Deia, paella & I.

A few years back, I took an idyllic trip to
the island of Mallorca and 
discovered that heaven truly does
reside on earth--
in the tiny seaside
Mediterranean town of Deia.  

That's me, on said trip, exploring the 
ancient village on my touring bike.  
Luckily, what the bike lacked in speed, 
was compensated in pure European panache.

Flash forward, and imagine my delight in happening across this article, last Sunday, 
featuring this tiny paella restaurant, perched along the cliffs.  The owner was insanely charming and loved everything about his paella--pans, rice, saffron.  The scents lured you in from far away.  I could have stayed forever, eating that delectable meal served in the sizzling pan.

And now that same tiny spot, the same one that enchanted me then, 
is making waves in the New York Times.

If only I could get on my bike and ride over right now...I would.  
You should, if you have any plans, to be anywhere near!

Now, time to relax and meet up with friends,

Enjoy your weekend & all it holds.  'Til next week.

remembering Maurice Sendak

Thinking of Maurice Sendak, 
and all the literary gifts 
that he provided for my daughter over the years.

How she loved 'In the Night Kitchen'.  
I think back to the number of times that we read that book; 
how my daughter never tired of the very crazy, imaginative story.  
A tale of being baked inside a cake, sliding down milk bottles, 
all under the watchful gaze of the full moon.

The story, so rich in symbolism.  Full of meaning beyond a child's imagination.  
How rare a book that can intrigue both child & parent.

Thank you Maurice, for this and many others.
