I have come to realize that this separation of kitchen and life is nearly impossible at times. There are moments in life that send me into the kitchen, and others that drive me away; right now it's the latter. Stress and grief have removed my appetite and desire to create, and while it hurts not to post here, it's because I simply have nothing to say. All I can do is provide a heart-felt memorial to the childhood pet who is gone.
Marmi is in 'kitty heaven' as my friend C. put it, but that doesn't make it less crappy or painful. I can't bear the idea that I'll visit her house and she won't be there. She was an amazing animal, truly a member of the family. I left the house first, and was always jealous of time spent with her. Our whole family will miss her.~meuwie, smarmi, smewman, marmilade.. marmi~
