A beautiful week

Happy Holidays to all my friends, followers and customers!

This is a time to spend with loved ones, whatever your religion - whether you do Christmas or Chanukkah or neither; the message of peace and love is universal.

Many of you who follow my blogs and instagram writings do so because you care about beauty and enjoying food and drink together with loved ones... I get so many messages in response to my rambling socio-historical ruminations - the stories I tell, however clearly set in a particular time and context, are universal. They are about who we all are.
