More is Sometimes Better

Sorry Julia Ormond, our “new” Sabrina. More is just not more for me. I did get to meet the first Sabrina, Audrey Hepburn, when she was volunteering for UNICEF. Michael Tilson Thomas created a new work at my father’s behest, that was played by the New World Orchestra, a youth group. Ms. Hepburn narrated across the US with the symphony, From The Diary of Anne Frank. I read it in 2nd grade and it shook my world.

I bought a small container called something other than it would have been called in Italy, an almost correct Caprese salad. Beautiful cherry tomatoes mixed with equal balls of fresh mozzarella.

It was bland, and this was my lunch. I added a tiny pinch of salt and pepper, tore two of my in-home grown basil leaves (it’s still too cold to plant outdoors) over the top and maybe drizzled on a quarter teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil.

Now that’s a salad! Other than dealing with government and health insurance all day and having no help or resolutions to anything at least I got a decent salad. Cheers! Dee
