rememberance...


I imagine that many will think this image a corny remembrance.
But the friend that I am honoring would have loved that I remember her with a tomato.
(And also teased me mercilessly in her loving way…)

I wanted to stop today for a moment in my hectic life and remember.
I wanted to remember all the victims and the families of those that perished on this horrific and tragic day on 2001.
But most particularly, I wanted to remember my friend.

I went to gather salad for my dinner last night and found this on heart-shaped tomato on the vine. It seemed appropriate to photograph it as a small tribute to my friend.
Food and cooking food was her life and she made others happy by what she created and how well she fed and nourished them.
She would have loved my silly and clumsy tribute...and would have laughed…a lot…

I dedicate this to my very dear friend 'N', a fellow foodie and very talented chef that perished in the collapse of the World Trade Center.
Merci for your friendship, courage and all that you have taught me.
You were always a blessing as a friend and continue to be an inspiration…
