I’ve been practicing reading my work aloud, which feels pretty strange but is a good thing to get used to. It takes seven and one-half minutes to get through my turkey story. (That’s at a public reading cadence. Left to my own devices, it would take more like 90 seconds. But I’m trying to make this intelligible.)

It’s a strange thing to go over something I’ve written so obsessively. I hope I don’t get sick of the piece.

I just read your Travelocity articles about Sonoma County and thought I'd introduce myself and my business: Relish Culinary School. Relish is a "roving" cooking school based in Healdsburg that takes cooking experiences out to farms, vineyards, wineries, private homes, beaches, parks and anywhere else that inspires us. Check out our website at

Next time you're in the area, please let me know. I'd love for you to attend a class as my guest to see for yourself how unique and fun our events can be.

Thank you! Healdsburg is beautiful. I certainly hope to get out there before too long.
