One of the things I love about artists is their indefatigable drive to create art—no matter what age, how many setbacks, who and what got in the way, or which well-meaning professional tried to steer them differently. They are simply compelled to continue. And they do. They create. Over decades, through family dramas, health catastrophes, catering gigs, broken relationships, and all manner of distractions life throws onto the long and winding road.

A while back I was invited to contribute a story to this very sweet, heartfelt site that features stories about mothers/grandmothers and favorite recipes... my contribution (about my favorite Greek cookies, Kourambiethes) was published this past week.

Enjoy... or at least know you're not alone! :)
