fish tacos

Fish tacos! What a treat we had with our friends today—two-dollar taco day. Enjoyment of food is one of life’s greatest treasures and to get tacos for two dollars each is something new. I have heard that some people just eat to live and find no pleasure in eating. How sad. I do not exactly live to eat, but savoring something tasty is a repeatable, renewable repast. The variety makes life interesting. I can think of many perfect meals or snacks that fit the situation just right. To name a few: a cup of steaming hot chicken noodle soup on a cold windy hike, a slice of my mom’s homemade bread, fresh out of the oven with lots of butter melted into it, Thanksgiving, when you finally get to sit down and savor the dressing, gravy and cranberry sauce, Pizza Man pizza, hearty vegetable beef soup or light as feather pancakes made by my Auntie Vi. I could go on, but I think I need to go and make myself a refreshing fruit smoothie.

About dmdubay

Since retiring from Northwest Airlines and moving to the Pacific Northwest, I have more time to devote to writing. My first novel, "Tales of Two Sisters" was published over a year ago. I have been writing poetry for a long time and am attempting to collate my poetry into a short book, with pictures. A sequel to "Tales of Two Sisters" should be getting closer to completion soon. Gardening and tending the vineyard take a lot of time in the summer. Even though I love the outdoors, these activities do cut down on my writing. So I appreciate that wintertime allows me time to write. Writing, for me, is what brings things into focus and helps me to make sense of the things that life brings. It is a gift to me and I hope that it will be to you also.
