    your precious memories in this post brought back a flood of memories of standing with my Danish grandmother in her small kitchen in Eugene making filbert raspberry cookies and cardoman rolls. My family would drive up from Southern California for Christmas with relatives and the only one who seemed at all like me was Grandma Louise. Her kitchen was her “office” where people came to sit at the old round wooden table, ostensibly to talk about cooking yet really to feel heard and known by her. Now i grind up cardamon for my fresh morning coffee just to start the day with thoughts of her and my wonderful parents who do the same.

    It must be a delight to see how your book and blog are touching so many hearts and evoking memories.

    Thank you for the wise, warm posts – I am going to buy your book this weekend at Book Passage here in Marin and share it with my Sausalito womens group.

      Thanks so much for your comment and for sharing your memories of your grandmother–so lovely. Please don’t hesitate to let me know if I can participate in your women’s group via speaker phone or some other way. I hope you’ll enjoy the book!

    This is so beautiful. I can’t wait to read the book when I’m back in Maryland this October (it seems the thing to linger over in a childhood bedroom). Congratulations!
