Just a note about commenting. I know there are folks looking at this site now and then. I would be delusional to say I have the world's best site and doubly delusional to claim I am the definitive authority on things. I would hope that if you are out there and you agree/disagree with me, like/hate a photo, want to discuss or know more, have a good question, or just want to say "Salaam" that you will leave a comment. For those of you for whom English is not your language, feel free to leave me a note in your language. I know enough people that can help translate for me.
And I would love to know what some of you are creating out there. I received a positive comment the other day from a person with an awesome Italian cooking blog in Italian; the pictures left me very hungry and the rest will get translated by a friend from Milan.
So, welcome. This site was begun in the hope that I might foster some discoveries and dialogues; in that sense I hope to make it yours as much as mine.
