A Burst of Happy In My Mouth
I don’t often get gifts in the mail. Okay, okay. Not counting the ones I point-and-click for myself.
But, I have never-ever received a gift from a passing comment on a blog.
Robert Johnson at The Quotidian Hudson is one of my favorite bloggers. Through the lens of his talented eye, he helps me visit New York City almost every day. It’s not the same as having the sounds and the smells, but I can imagine everything there, in his pictures.
When Robert mentioned that he was making salsa several months ago, I posted a comment to say I wanted some. It was my tummy doing its wishful thinking. I didn’t really expect him to comply.
Yet, when we got back from our Holiday Trip to Hell, I found two sealed jars of green and red hotness sitting on my kitchen island. It was the perfect gift at just the right time.
Thank you, Robert.
Robert and I collaborated a while back on a post, a tribute of sorts to my father. I wrote the text on my blog, and he took the gorgeous pictures. Take a look.
