I arrived slightly early, right as Aaron was returning from work. Introductions were made and last minute meal preparations were finalized. The raw vegan meal was moved to the outdoor table and after a few Jewish prayers that initiate the sabbath, we proceeded with a lovely meal peppered with delightful conversation.
Like Susan, Aaron heard the same story on NPR and immediately signed up just this week. He was sorta surprised to get contacted so rapidly.
I felt right at home. I learned a bit about Jewish traditions. They'd recently moved to Denver from Encinitas so we talked about life in San Diego county. A graceful chicken hawk made an appearance. It was 100% an pleasant experience. Thanks Susan for initiating me and thanks to Aaron & Susan for invitingly me into their home for a marvelous meal.
