Charlie woke me up with morning tea and a slice of cake on President's Day.
The cake was a surprise. It is my favorite cake. He made it with the Satsumas from the grocery and our own meyer lemon, harvested from one of our guest bedrooms. The cake had a scent that was seductive beyond words and a flavor that was on point.
It reminded me of President Obama and his leadership of our nation. Always correct, endlessly sweet and positive, and never tedious.
