Farewell 2007

Rob and I have a tradition of making sushi New Year’s Eve and staying in. Tonight, on my way home, our neighbor was standing in the lobby and ready to hop on the elevator. I rode up with him, chatting about New Year’s plans and, quite spontaneously, I invited him and his wife to join us for sushi.

I’m so glad I did. We just had a great conversation ranging across theater, philosophy and cinema. They’re coming over tomorrow for the traditional New Year’s Day meal. We’ve got a small group coming for black-eye peas, collards and cornbread. I don’t know about you, but where I come from, you must have those New Year’s Day to ensure health and prosperity.

It’s a fine way to send the old year out and bring the New Year in.

  1. Mary, is there some tradition in Southern cuisine about a luck penny in the black eyed peas…or something like that, to insure New Year prosperity?

    Hauoli Makahiki Hou!
