« Late; sleepy | Main | Packing »



I was honored to correspond with the late great cooking writer MFK Fisher for a while in the 80s, and I sent her this chapter because I love it so much. For several years I had an early summer ritual of re-reading Dandelion Wine. I always get the shivers when Lavinia takes the shortcut through the Ravine. The last line of that chapter is classic Ray B. And I often think of Col. Freeleigh's long distance calls to Mexico. I hope Ray left the same way.


now *that* is huge... Fisher especially (for me it's always The Gastronomical Me). Quite a link there.
