Happy new year, all! And what a year it’s been — what a year it was. In my mind, the new year began for me late last Friday when I arrived in California, when I was greeted within an hour of arriving with the most incredible meal at Chez Panisse – thank you, thank you Sharon! I’ve had time to settle in, explore, and eat (and eat and eat) as I get to know this beautiful new place. My internship at Chez Panisse starts tomorrow. Monumental. The difference between today and tomorrow. Dreams, manifestations, curveballs, connections. Life is stunning. To a new year, and a very new start.
