Driving through southern Indiana yesterday, I was listening to the Patty Griffin song Making Pies, and thought of my friend Lali. I've known Lali since my Cincinnati days, and her wedding to her husband Doug was in a beautiful, rural southern Indiana setting. The ceremony was special and uniquely their own, but one thing sticks in my memory. Rather than a wedding cake, there was this enormous table of homemade pies. So many so, that someone had constructed a tiered structure to lay them all out on the table.
So the scenery and the song reminded me of an old friend - one I haven't been in touch with for quite a while. Time to pick up the phone.
