A Tribute to a Real Woman

I got to thinking about all the people who have been in my life. Some of them, like my family, are a part of me and others, like friends and my partner, have become an important part of my life. Others have come and gone or just passed through. But many have left something behind - curious legacies that, taken together, make up the fabric of who I am.

In these notes, I write about some of these curious legacies. Today: My Grandmother’ Recipe for Soy Sauce Chicken
