Site we love:  Letters of Note
It’s a wonderful web site, now also a new book:  Letters of Note gathers fascinating personal correspondence from well-known people. I love the beauty of an elegant letter composed from the heart, written, typed and mailed (not emailed! or tweeted!  or blogged, for that matter!) But it can be faxed —- as my husband sent me a series of clever faxes when we were dating which I still have.

Included:  a humble, grateful letter written by Albert Camus, after winning the Nobel Prize, to an old teacher; a deliriously, intensely passionate love letter from Henry Miller to Anais Nin; and my favorite— this charming, inspiring letter of advice from Kurt Vonnegut to a class of high school students.

Site We Love: Glutton For Life

Writer/reader/creative consultant/city mouse/country mouse Laura Silverman has a wonderful blog about embracing all of life’s goodness—— as she puts it, she loves:

sharing food with friends • reading while I eat • eating what I’ve grown • foraging in the wild • roaring fires in winter • swaying hammocks in summer • turning over a new leaf • puns, tongue-twisters & verbal vollies • pickles, cheese, bourbon & caramel • cooking for loved ones • linen sheets • food markets in foreign countries • movies • a good hike • ferns, peonies & scented geraniums • textiles • vetiver, sandalwood & myrrh • chiles, ginger & salt • (almost) anything smoked • yoga • picnics, cookouts & camping • Baroque music • flea markets & junk shops • exotic ingredients • afternoon naps • dinner parties • a well-packed suitcase • a bargain • waterfalls • poetry

I find it inspiring and informative, with innovative recipes and simple-pleasures done right, such as how to boil the perfect egg.  I’m also anxious to try the Grilled Pineapple Salsa (shown in the photo above) one summer weekend.
