(Follow-up to post of January 7th).
On the other side of the Continent, at the Culinary Institute of America, the relatives, colleagues, and students of the late Brian Smith gather today to remember him. May his passing be a blessing to all.
Deep in a ravine,
in a tree on the old farm,
a single dove sings
out, searching for a friend,
lonely voice in the evening.
