Hazel taught me to knit. She also showed me how to make popcorn over the stove. Mieka passed along her methods for line-drying clothes. These are now activities I consider integral life skills. Then there are the delicacies too delicious not to be enjoyed regularly: Anna’s pimento moida, Yvonne’s marinated broccoli, Marcel and Randy’s preserves. Without these morsels meals would be a recurrent dirge of chickpeas and spaghetti. And what of Jacquie and Mary’s navigations through the nooks and crannies of closeted cheese shops and trunk shows? One keeps the other in check, and both activities appropriated as my own.
