BLACK AND WHITE WEDNESDAY #40 - TO BARBARA

- Sadly, Our Paths Separate Here -

Empty-handed I entered
the world
Barefoot I leave it.
My coming, my going —
Two simple happenings
That got entangled.
Like dew drops
on a lotus leaf
I vanished
- Kozan Ichikyo

Farewell, dear Friend!
You battled cancer like a champion and left an indelebile mark on the international food blogger scene.
You will never be forgotten...

Barbara Harris was the lovely foodie behind the blog "Winos And foodies" and lived in Brisbane, Australia. She passed away on the 30th of June 2012.

- Plentiful -
The second picture was submitted to "Black & White Wednesday", an event created by Susan at "The Well-Seasoned Cook". It will be hosted on the 11th of June by Anusha at "Tomato Blues" (click here in order to see who is hosting the next roundup).

  9. Such a nice tribute to Barbara! That was a very kind thing to do. And your pictures, as always, are wonderful. The fava bean picture works better in B&W than in color, IMO, although I like it in color too (at least I'm assuming this is the same picture that was in your last post). Thank you.
