Begin again.

The clean page. An apron with no smudges or stains. A fresh start. Welcome to la vie en route.

There was a marriage. A boy and a girl with two rings and a promise. A new beginning at hand. Life is like that- new beginnings (and we tend to like them more than the endings). This year has had its share of surprises, opportunities to rejoice and space to grieve.

I’ve been blogging since 2004, but it’s all been a tad scattered. Food over here. Poetry over there. If I were honest, I’d say that’s partly due to me separating the twain and not inviting them to the same party. There is poetry in food and lush bits of food-smacked poetry…  especially if it involves Neruda.

That’s changing.  La Vie en Route is a chance for us to break bread, conspire over poetry, perhaps chat about art and what inspires. Take a breath. Slow down. Let the stew simmer instead of boil. So let’s go! On y va!


About Anneliesz

Food. Poetry. People. Art. If I was Julie Andrews singing her song, these would be some of my favorite things. My biggest food fail was something we'll call "Tuna Surprise," but that never kept me out of the kitchen. Cooking is my own playtime. While I'm not a chef and would never claim to be anything less than an experimenter of flavors and textures, I sure do love to feed people. Then there's my love of writing which commenced at a wee age over a talking pen named "Percy". I love rolling words around my tongue in different languages. Art camp taught me the importance of not having an eraser. Life is an adventure and one whose marrow I seek to suck as much out of as possible. Join me as I live my life en route.
