grapes of peace and a mama memory
October, 2009

on one of the many breaks from studying in the peace palace library,

a concord grapevine was found!

with the most absurdly deliciously sweet berries

my mouth had ever tasted!



mama and i loved them so much,

that i just had to make some jam for my trip to see her in vienna.

sweet grapes make sour compote!

sweet grapes make sour jam!

August, 2009


we picked blackberries in the morning light in an oxford cemetary, and boiled them with lavender blossoms. we ate them with a belegen gouda with her mother for tea in the garden.
