For Lennie

2387295427_234fb94b97

I think about one of my former editors so often these days. She left the rat race to study pastry making at an incredibly prestigious baking school in Paris. She now works as a pastry chef at the sweetest little restaurant on the edge of the Arroyo Seco. She creates the most divine cakes, breads and sugared cookies. This photo reminded me of the possibilities and opportunities you can find in places you don't always expect, like colorful little pastry cups waiting to be filled with the stuff of a happy life.

On days like this, I think about Lennie. It makes me think of warm buttered bread and calm. And I'm sure that everything will be ok.

The picture leaves a lot to the imagination..looks sweet and fairytale like. Very respectfull what your former editor did! It almost sounds like a script for another Jean-Pierre Jeunet movie. Wonderful how you can surpise me every day Tina!

What a delightful surprise, Tina! Thanks for your kind words, great philosophy of life and cool new blog. And next time you're in the neighborhood, drop in for a maple-oat scone or buttercream-frosted something or other!
