For Rita and Pedro

April 12, 2012

I have wanted to give you this gift for a while. This gift of an image that makes me think of you, of Portugal, of your house in Sintra, of your hospitality and of your daughter. It makes me think of cool mornings where the chill creeps up your toes, transmitted through the crisp tile that penetrates through the wool of sock, a moment when warm tea is most welcomed in the day; it reminds me of the crackling of a fire place that brings each to his own place of rest in the evening. It evokes in my heart the importance of a shared table and well-devoured cheese and bread communed over. I am forever grateful for your hospitality. Obrigada.
