Good day my readers. I could not help but want to reblog this post from an old and dear friend who is an incredibly talented. In addition, he is a gifted cook. In fact, Steven is cooking his way across America hosting a dinner party in every state of the union. His blog post was the first thing I read when I opened my computer today. Naturally, I reached for the box of kleenex. I then went into an unplanned baking frenzy. Here is what Steven shared. It's a journey within a journey.
A heart-warming small-world moment:
In December I posted the story about the Keys family. Bill and Lisa Keys hosted me in Pennsylvania, but our friendship extended a decade back to when we were living in Connecticut. The journey to their home in Eastern PA involved many stops along the way and people who've shared in the grieving of William, their son. While staying in DC a couple of days ago, my hosts returned from a party and gave me this bracelet that they had received from someone who was close to William. That person probably had read the story about William's family, found out I was staying with my hosts, and wanted to pass it along, this reminder of someone who still means a lot to many of us. He had been wearing it for a long time. If you read the story, the person who gave me the bracelet is Elinore's brother.
