Starting February 19, 2020

"Nourish the body, feed the soul." - unknown

Next week ushers in the Christian season of Lent, and while we may not all observe this tradition, it is a good excuse to indulge in some satisfying, nourishing food now through "Fat Tuesday" - like pancakes at Belvidere's Episcopal Church of St. Luke and St. Mary or fried chicken in this photo from Celestine's Catering Company - and then perhaps reflect and focus on things (other than food) that bring meaning and joy to our lives. Happy Mardi Gras and Happy Wanderings!
