    My brother came up for a quick visit. I found Alphonso mangos at the mercato. We’ve practically made ourselves ill indulging in a childhood memory.

    We spent our early childhood in India (parents were both teachers), mangos were our favorite fruit and the woman who cared for us always had them in the kitchen. Fresh mango, mango juice, mango pudding, so many ways she spoiled us. So we sat out on the deck, ate slices of mango, lightly dusted with chili powder, and said a blessing for Ayah Shrama.

    This sounds like the beginning of a chapter in your life story written by F Scott Fitzgerald.
