First time I slept all the way through the night since I got sick. I feel so refreshed!

My oldest son drove us to Brooklyn yesterday in my car. He hasn’t driven in eight years and he’d never used power brakes before – so I was jolted a lot, but it wasn’t too bad. And my youngest and his wife made a beautiful Thanksgiving table; I just wish I’d been able to eat more of it. Then we watched a movie (Steven Spielberg’s “Super 8″, which was such a pastiche of/homage to other movies, it seemed to have no center of its own).

Oh, and I brought a toy for the dog – a stuffed-plush tree trunk with three little squirrels inside. She had a ball ferreting out the squirrels all night.

How was your Thanksgiving?

P.S. Found out from my son, who’s seen him at art galleries, that Robert DeNiro is only about 5’7 or 8. Damn, he looks tall on the screen, doesn’t he?

Double secret probation

The mind reels.

Much of the money we spend in corporate chain stores is being used to help elect the monsters who look after the interests of the wealthy, at our expense. More here.

Stay Hungry

Here’s that rhythm again…

If I don’t love you then …

Grits ain’t groceries
Eggs ain’t poultry
And Mona Lisa was a man.

Babette’s feast

One of my favorite movies. The theme: Food as sacrament. Hope you’re all having a sumptuous feast.

Simple gifts

Alison Krauss and Yo-Yo Ma:


“Oh, the humanity…”
