Postcard from San Francisco

When you part from your friend, you grieve not. For that which you love in him may be clearer in his absence, as the mountain to the climber is cleaner from the plain. ~ Kahlil Gibran

(San Francisco, glorious even in your shades of gray. That which I love in you is clear in your absence, from Michigan.)

    Maureen, you posted this gorgeous picture on my birthday. I left SF after 20+ years to return to family in the East. “I’ve Left my Heart in …” has become a cliche. But for anyone that has lived in the City by the Bay, it’s a powerful, timeless love song.

    1. Maureen Abood says:

      Ahhh, we share that special joy for the city by the bay, Maureen. We both parted from her for the love of family…but she’ll always be in our hearts!

    I am from Petoskey and have lived in San Francisco for 37 years now. I love the city but still look forward to visiting Northern Michigan to see my family when ever I can. I am a 4th generation Michigander!

    HI Maureen, Just a little note to ask you if there is a Lebanese cookbook in the works. The reason I ask is that many, upon reading David Lebovitz’s blog (are you familiar with it) about his trip to Lebanon, are asking if he knows of any good Leb cookbooks. And since I think you mentioned something re a cookbook in your blog, I thought of you. Hope you’re enjoying California!

    1. Maureen Abood says:

      Joan, how great to see David’s trip to Lebanon–he stayed where I did, at the Four Seasons Beirut. Divine breakfasts. Yes, Lebanese cookbook!! Stay tuned…

    Always think fondly of the time I lived there.
