Works of art
Last Tuesday, we drove over to Bennington to the home of Mary Anderson for a little gathering to remember her husband and our friend, John Nissen, who died two years ago. Five of us had a simple meal and shared memories of John, with whom I had spent many, many memorable hours as a colleague and friend, including a great deal of laughter. Ellen brought two desserts for our meal, an apple pie and an almond hazel-nut cake. I thought they were works of art, and took a picture of them. They were also very delicious to eat and everyone enjoyed them. It was a lovely gathering.
