As we sat eating at our sunny table my mind wandered off thinking how well Fidel's asparagus might travel to my family in Puerto Rico. Would I send them by FedEx? I could send a little package to my sister, brothers, Titi Ñeca, my dad...
Wait. My dad passed away a year and a half ago.
Coming back from lala land was painful. Then I had to smile. He's not really gone, is he?
Death is so easy to forget. At least for a second.
