Sometimes the depression just flares up with no rhyme or reason. Today was such a day. I felt like cement, like I couldn't move and wanted to cry. I couldn't come up with a more specific reason than the fact that depression borders on being the "norm" for me.
I had put a post on Ted Allen's Facebook page, asking a question about a recipe of his that I plan to use for a brunch I'm hosting next weekend. He just posted me a detailed and very gracious reply! So between him and Bobby, that makes TWO people I respect and admire who took time from VERY busy schedules to respond to my posts. And coincidentally, two people in New York and at Food Network I've been in touch with who know my name. It may seem small or silly to others, but I'm thrilled, appreciative and an even bigger fan of both men.
(Okay, this is the fourth time I've edited this blog entry! Why does Ted's picture keep vanishing?)
