Beauty and The Beast

Such an intense day here in Seattle. Such remarkable people at this BlogHer Food conference. Lisa Stone, an extraordinary, generous and strong woman. The personal stories of so many–writers from Sydney and Birmingham to Durham and Toronto. Stories that haunt me. The lost and found. Hope. And overcoming illness and doubt, and finding strength.

It’s late/early morning and I’m feeling overwhelmed and quite small in this world…But I want to leave this moment with beauty–a snapshot from the market where I often feel at home–and gratitude to all who continue to share their words and food, the gift of self. And special thanks to BlogHer Ladies: Liza Luna, Elisa Camahort Page, Lisa Stone, Polly Pagenhart, Shannon Carroll, Jenny Lauck, Jennifer Morris, Amelia Elsbree, Stacy Morrison…

    I loved hearing your talk at the end of BlogHer Food, and as soon as I got home I ordered your book. I’ve been listening to it in my car ever since – on my commute, on breaks, when I need a moment to myself. Thanks for writing such powerful words that even I, someone who knows her parents and family history, can relate to.
