Confession: Tex-Mex cuisine is not really my thing. I don't like queso, cilantro, or onions that aren't cooked down enough. I can't eat food that has a spice level over a 3/10. I don't like my food drenched in shredded cheese. The Tex-Mex food in Austin really doesn't appeal to me. 🤷♀️
But this little restaurant in Salt Lake City blew me away and won my heart with their Tex-Mex food. The refried beans and fresh crispy corn tortillas were the best I've ever had. And you get a free sampler plate of all 8 of their house moles, all of which were such a delight. If more Tex-Mex places in Texas had more and better tasting mole maybe they would finally win me over. 😋
Ay de mí, de sobra sé que no. De sobra sé que lo que persigo siempre ha escapado a mi facundia, a mi memoria y a mi reflexión. Guisos prodigiosos, extraordinarios pollos a la cazadora, maravillosos gallos al vino,...

The Grain Cafe in Long Beach. We got the nachos, the wet burrito, and the mole burrito. Everything was delicious! This place has a large menu with lots of great choices like salads, wraps, sandwiches, pizza, pasta, enchiladas, dessert (whole cakes).... they also have a bunch of breakfast items that look good, like tofu scramble, waffles, and crepes!! Their food is also organic, and there are a lot of healthy options. This place opens at 6am everyday except on Sunday, when they open at 7am, and they’re open till 10pm everyday except Friday and Saturday; they’re open till 11pm on those nights. @thegraincafe#burrito#nachos#beansandrice#guaco#guacomole#mole#wetburrito#mexicanfood#longbeach#vegan#vegansofig#whatveganseat

“Old Friends” (Oil on Cradled Gessoed Birch Panel, 8 inches by 8 inches, SOLD).
“No man is an island,
Entire of itself,
Every man is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main.
If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less.
As well as if a promontory were.
As well as if a manor of thy friend's
Or of thine own were:
Any man's death diminishes me,
Because I am involved in mankind,
And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls;
It tolls for thee”.
John Donne (1572 – 1631)
I love this poem. It seems evermore relevant today even though John Donne wrote it in 1624. I wonder if we really are drifting apart from each other, atomising, as some would have it? Or if it’s just an impression filtered through Media of the voices of those who shout loudest? And with yet another Tragedy for innocent people in the News again today.
I wonder, too, if Donne was peering into the future at the spectre of a diminished Europe; fanciful, I know, but the thought stirs me.
Anyway, this new painting depicts the meeting of two souls out walking along the North Kent Marshes, skirting the Estuary near to where we reside. It’s a strange and beautiful landscape; quite bleak sometimes, but always fascinating.
So here we have a meeting of old friends. On the left: the Painter, Valentine Finching (1814–1882), and on the right, the Poet, Moses Grafton (1830–1897). Given that neither of these creatures is renowned for their peerless eyesight, it’s perhaps fortunate they are bound, it would seem, to be on course to upset each other, before Finching doffs his hat politely in greeting. Grafton, meanwhile, appears perhaps astonished, and not little absent of mind, peering through his pince nez.
