Food, Meals and the Portals of Vertical Time

Dear Friends,

Those of you who are followers of my blog know that I suspended publication last February, but may not know that I have resumed my work and writing under a new website, Vertical Time Yoga. I have a mailing list in which I announce new postings and would very much like you to be on it, if you aren't already (you can sign up on the Resource page of my website). If you would prefer to follow me through this blog, I will also continue to announce my postings here, then link to my website. 

Wishing you the very best,

Bill Scheffel

Most of the feasts I have taken has included a glass or two of wine. Most of these feasts I've taken alone. In some years I might have eaten alone up to two-hundred or more evenings. "Alone" I must put in parenthesis also, since my intention at every feast has been to invite the dralas and dine with them.

I've been living from the suitcase for twenty-three months and have given the dal recipe to several of my friends and shown them how to make it. Read more...
