The End of an Affair
Viennese Moments


A little bread—a crust—a crumb—
A little trust—a demijohn—
Can keep the soul alive—
Not portly, mind! but breathing—warm—
Conscious—as old Napoleon,
The night before the Crown!

A modest lot—A fame petite—
A brief Campaign of sting and sweet
Is plenty! Is enough!
A Sailor's business is the shore!
A Soldier's—balls! Who asketh more,
Must seek the neighboring life!

Emily Dickinson

  5. If a photograph tells a story, the you have certainly achieved yet another tale of the delicious. Even your empty plate has panache.

    If you ever want to make an incredible chocolate killer cake look up Julia Child's "BOCA NEGRA." I make it
    often and serve it with bourbon whipped cream.

    1. I have never made it, thank you for the tip!
      My family loves Julia's Queen of Sheba chocolate cake, maybe I should try a new recipe. ;-)
