Or like Tiny Tim in Dickens’ Christmas Carol, watching someone feast when you were starving? These are classic examples of being excluded from something that is hoped for with great longing.

Well, funny story… I actually first became aware of food allergies through my brother. In high school, he had a long bout of daily hives due to some unknown substance. My mother went on a mission to identify the culprit, including eliminating every common food allergen: nuts, berries, diary, etc., from our diets and slowly introducing them back. Well, mostly his diet, but we were often along for the ride. That was miserable. I’m sure more for him, but I [...]

So, in first grade, I embarked on my first fishing trip and joined my extended family on a trip to the Wichita Mountains. I remember it being a hot summer day, [...]

Lately I have been thinking a lot about bread. Several of my colleagues greatly enjoy quality bread, and their enthusiasm for the qualities of “the loaf” have rekindled my own passion for it.
