Daily bread and a view of heaven: local goods

February 10th, 2005 · 1 Comment

Out of her mercy for our illness, my friend dropped off some of her leftover brick-oven-baked bread for us to enjoy. I have seen the oven she and her husband made in their backyard but I think this is the first time I’ve tasted what she has made in it. This rye one was particularly beautiful with its concentric circles. She lives on the north end of the island near the highway and puts out a sign when she has bread for sale: if you have the opportunity, I’d say it’s worth stopping the car to get a loaf or two of her handiwork.


Another friend of mine, artist Paul Ziakin, opened a show titled “Views from my Heaven” at the Treehouse Cafe, 4569 Lynnwood Road NE, on the island. I haven’t seen it yet but I hope to stop by soon. Again, another stop worth making, to see the way he plays with color and shape and be inspired by his creativity. In July 2003, before I had my own blog, Ted and I had a fun night going to see one of Paul’s shows in Seattle. His paintings will be at the cafe through March 15.
