At the beginning, the author declares what his book is about: I concluded that what America needs is not another cookbook, but a book on bread and wine in relation to life. As Greg Atkinson states in his West Coast Soup: [Pellegrini's]...

‪#‎poetry‬ ‪#‎running‬ ‪#‎writing‬ ‪#‎park‬
At the trailhead I vacillate and waver, shake away the urge to start, as if it were a pest aiming at my face, turn my attention to a thought-that-cannot-wait-a-moment-longer, though it has lain forgotten for days.
