Happiness and Spinach Balls

Lila channeled Martin Buber in this poem.

88 Years

I spent many years

Trying to learn what is happiness?


Library books I checked out

You kids


I finally found the meaning

Happiness is other


And I had it all along.



Spinach Balls

Spinach Balls Recipe

You may want to try these Old School Spinach Balls. Yeah, there’s breadcrumbs and butter, but you don’t have to eat the entire batch!

Pretend you’re at a fancy party, like your 40th high school class reunion held at the bowling alley, and you just spotted Mark, the guy you had a crush on,  who asked your best friend to the 1975 prom instead of you, and then married her and they now have 3 beautiful children, and you acted like it was all okay at the prom, because you never had the guts to tell anyone of your true feelings. And no, that didn’t happen to me! Maybe I’ll have one more Spinach Ball, but that’s it!
