Notes from yesterday:
The little island of bushes in front of our house had a rough time of it.
A restaurant called Steelfire in Fulton has announced that it is closing. In their letter outlining what led up to their decision, the owners list five factors that influenced them as they weighed their future:
- Rising supply costs
- Staffing concerns
- Decreased hours of operation
- Increased minimum wage
- Patience required to keep restaurant going in the current environment
I’ll Be Home for Christmas: COVID Edition, Elizabeth Brunetti, Take on E
I’ve written about Ms. Brunetti’s work before. She has a gift for combining words and pictures that produces a result which is so much more than the sum of its parts. Her writing gives you insight into the photos. The photos make the words more vibrant. This particular piece has an emotional presence that places the reader within the author’s day to day existence without being manipulative or maudlin. I highly recommend it.
