Mugs, memories, and community (see our edition from 2 March 2014)
I have a large mug with a funny horse design.
My sister was dying last fall and when I went to see her for the last time
she said to me you must take home some memories. I looked in her cupboard
and there it was. Both of us were long time horse lovers and horse owners.
Now I use it often and I remember her and her sense of humour.

When living in Paris last year, I walked
every day on my way to university past a shop that sold pottery, icons, and
rosaries made by monks and nuns. In the window was
a beautiful mug that was the perfect shape to cup with both hands, and the patterns
reminded me of butterflies. It was one of the coldest, snowiest winters Paris ever
had, and as I passed the shop I saw this mug and thought about drinking chocolat
chaud and was warmed. I finally decided to get it, and now each time I use it in the
United States I am reminded of my time at the American Cathedral in Paris, the
friends I made in France, and how the many cups of hot chocolate warmed me up in
that cold, cold winter.
