creamy polenta to the rescue

i had such a long day, it's almost impossible to explain. i mean, it was as if there were periods during which i could feel the rotation of the earth. it was dragging THAT slowly.

BUT, it's over now, and i ended my day with a delightful fluorish...dinner at donna's with salimah. more specifically, we both had veal scaloppine over creamy polenta with roasted tomatoes and garlic spinach sauteed with pine nuts and golden raisins. delish!

and even more than the food, my delight came in sitting across the table from someone with whom i don't have to explain anything. not how long my day was, or how i don't know what i'm doing with my life, or how i don't know how to feel about this person or that person - none of it. i'm just me, and she's just her, and there is so much context, words are often dispensable to our interactions. sure, the polenta went down nice, but that kind of knowing is the TRUE comfort....
