Day 40: Darte

17 May

I met Darte about fifteen years ago.  She was (and still is) an artist and she was getting married; I was a caterer and was thrilled to be asked to cater a wedding. We met and talked about what kinds of offerings she wanted to have at the reception. I liked that Darte gave me plenty of freedom to create a very special occasion.  In fact, I think it was a memorable event for both of us.

It is funny how you can live very near your friends but still find it hard to find time to visit with them.  Darte and I live less than 10 miles apart but we seldom see each other, and that just seems wrong. Why do we limit ourselves to occasional visits with friends when we can (and maybe should) find time to see them more often.  What important things are we doing? Or are we just lazy?

Tonight I tracked down Darte at a party and gave her a spinach and pepper quiche.  I think that sometimes artists find it hard to find time to cook because they are creating “works of art.”  Meanwhile, I am creating works of art as well – but my “art” is much more temporal.

    Now that looks like a delicious pie! Seems to me I sampled one of those at something you catered at the library not long ago. From experience I know Darte is going to love it!
