February 2023

Having a nice utilitarian lunch at EWR where I am waiting for my flight to Tel Aviv – and, as usual, I am HOURS early.

Having a not bad Chicken salad here at Saison – and grabbed my knife to cut the Paillard. Yep!! It’s plastic. Why? Oh! Yeah! Of course it’s plastic. I tried to stab myself with it. I feel so much secure now. Though who’s to say you couldn’t sneak a fork on!


On the eve before my Pilgrimage to the Holy Lands – I find myself on Ash Wednesday. Which means it is a day of fasting, with exceptions for age, etc.

Preparing for a Prayerful Adventure

My tags, my itinerary, plugs, shekels, and stuff. It’s been awhile since I’ve gone overseas!

Though I do not see a fasting exception for dumping my compost, last-minute errands, and packing – I am thinking that’s okay. I’ll do the age thing. I hope to populate this space soon with some delicious food. For now, it is off to another foreign land for some profound adventures.
