To Us: Tony and Gillena Cox; when sweet love was the flavour of life

as i stir salt
into boiling water
for the pasta
i think of us far away
now in my yesterdays

How often it is that food is a trigger for fond memories of loved ones.

Perfect! it is in those tasks that we do over and over, the routines, that we read the changes of time. The contrast and the similarity and the time to think merge as time spirals on. Love.
