I found this today It is something I wrote about Jesse when he was 5... Today I was taking care of my son Jesse. I sometime wonder where he comes up with stuff that makes me smile or laugh. Today I asked him if he want to start to learn to play an instrument. He said actually a violin... I said wow why not a guitar or drums? He said because he already knew how to play the violin already. Really! Are they teaching you how to play in school? No, I saw some one do it one time

Taste changes Some people can eat the same food everyday. My wife for instance, can eat a grilled chicken salad everyday. There is a running joke about that in our household... Jesse has his go to dishes like curry, pasta, etc. Me, well I like to try new things explore new flavors and ways of cooking.

Life on a plate Growing up in chinatown nyc in the early 70’s I remember a lot thing I never thought about till now.
