    This is wonderfully written account of your family history Barbara, I had tears at the beginning and understanding at the end. What a model you are for fledging writers and us humans who are now hurting from the events on the other side of the pond. ANd some here at home as well.

      Oh, Dassi, thank you for this beautiful comment. I have been thinking of you these last few weeks. I have missed your writing so much and am so grateful for the family stories you shared that always touched my heart in a unique and profound way.

    My extended family has roots in both Israel and Italy. We celebrated ALL the holidays, both Christan and Jewish. Our cultures united in love around food. I recall the epic table spreads, replete with ethnic specialies and fine china. My aunt, Camille, was the glamorous one and I especially enjoyed when she hosted at her home. She had a dog!

    Thank you so much, Rosemary, for this peek into your family life. What wonderful memories. I guess we all have at least one glamorous aunt, right? I’m so glad and grateful you shared this!
