A Goodbye To Savor

A tribute I wrote to my beloved grocery store appeared in today’s Chronicle, in its own special section with a touching illustration. I added the photos below for extra flavor.




I am a rather obscure 14th C. poet, whose work has been translated into over thirty dialects of gibberish. I now spend my days translating from the gibberish into English and back again, as need be.

  1. That’s wonderful, Eva–congratulations on the much wider readership! I liked your tribute very much and it’s always sad to see small businesses closing–especially favorite long-time neighbourhood stores. . .


  2. What a grand goodbye to a couple who maintained the kind of neighborhood, community-oriented store that we should encourage and support.Your article will be a lasting memento for a fading kind of business, an endangered species needing protection.

  3. Oh my. How I dislike when a favorite business closes. You captured the sentiment beautifully. I’m
    A strong believer in supporting our local independent businesses. And congratulations on the publishing of your article.
