She Taught Me to Eat Artichokes—The Discovery of the Heart of Friendship

(Sta-Kris, Inc.)
With Illustrator Paul Micich

she taught me to eat artichokesA seemingly simple story that merits reflection: Day-to-day events slowly and patiently transform two neighbors into friends. From small talk over the backyard fence to an everybody-comes barbecue, from caroling to graduation parties, two women drift toward friendship. Until a dinner party, with artichokes as the first course. So appropriate. As you peel away the petals of an artichoke, you come to the heart of the plant. And as people peel away their own protective layers, they come to the heart of the person, where friendship resides.

 

 

A timeless message wrapped in the spirituality of soul.

A book friends gift to friends.

A true story.
