Learn more about the Amplify online exhibit from the Cultural Center of Cape Cod! DINNER music

My kid has moved into his dorm, and my friends are waiting for the teary, heartbroken depression to set in.  I can’t promise it wont happen, but if feels unlikely.  I do miss him.  And, I do miss his oddities –those things that seem normal only to us & set each of us apart from the rest of the world.  When my son Oscar eats his favorite foods, he hums, unaware; it is his beloved oddity.  I never have to ask how he likes his dinner, I just have to listen.  My husband does not hum.  I miss it.  This next Call wants to know about the music in you.  Take a look…

a la CARTE

I lived in South Carolina for almost 20 years.  About half of my time was spent in the Low Country of Charleston and the other half was spent in the Midlands.  Neither South Carolina, nor the South in general, is true to the fried chicken & barbecue stereotype, although excellent versions of both can be found.  The Foot Hills of South Carolina is home to some of the best Modern American menus of the Mississippi.  This next Call calls the area home traditionally offered an excellent menu of shows each year. You could be included…

I dream of rainbow colored foods.  No doubt you’ve read more than one of my artificial food coloring rants. And, for the record, I don’t understand why one would color food for the sake of coloring them.  But the good news is, we are finding our way back to natural pigments made from tumeric, beet root & blueberries.  One day, I’ll get to eat rainbow cupcakes with full abandon & no fear.  This next Call wants the entire rainbow, but you’re only responsible for ONE of the colors.  Take a look…

Lemons fix everything.  You know that iced tea that is too bitter at your local diner.  Lemon.  And that soft drink that is too much syrup and not enough carbonation.  Lemon, again.  The vodka cranberry make with too much juice?  Lemon works better than lime.  It truly is a miracle fruit.  The gallery sponsoring this next Call comes with lemon built into the name.  Take a look…

There are reasons, philosophical to medical, both against & in favor of the consumption of some things.  But more often that not, it just comes down to personal taste.  I hear people complain about the flavor of cilantro on a seemingly non-stop basis, but I can’t imagine a cilantro-less world.  Some people are never going to eat cilantro; I am not going to stop eating it.  This next Call is like cilantro, you’re going to love it or hate it, but it is still going to be your choice –no one’s forcing you.  So, take a look, or not…

I have a tiny refrigerator.  Well, let me re-phrase that.  I have a small (by American standards) full-size refrigerator. When I down-sized to a smaller home in preparation for a more mobile existence, my refrigerator shrank too.  Luckily, my new smaller home & its appliances are located only 5 minutes from the grocery store which is a marked improvement from the 20+ minutes it took before I moved.  As a result, I can now by produce more often & store it outside of my new, tiny-to-me refrigerator, making for fresher, tastier meals.   This next Call wants to know about your botanicals, but they don’t have to be edible.  Take a look…

Painting is my therapy, my peaceful, creative place, and I treasure that,” says the artist.

Last week I was in a restaurant with a gift shop, and I complained during the entire meal about Christmas decorations being out & available for sale in September.  Then on Monday, the tail end of Irma brought us 55° temperatures and rain.  Suddenly I couldn’t stop humming “Silver Bells” & craving hot chocolate.  I’ve got to get to a warmer climate before my family makes me sleep in the car, ha.  The magazine in this next Call will be distributed in Miami.  Maybe I should volunteer…
