Belonging to Oneself

Happy Independence Day! 
“The greatest thing in the world is to know how to belong to oneself.”
—Michel de Montaigne, The Complete Essays

Off to make some chimichurri, for swordfish.  I’m celebrating my independence, and being unAmerican in menu choices and colors.  May also head for the French café midday, unless the lake at Shoreline beckons, in which case we’ll take straw hats and folding chairs and The Ingredients of Love, which I must add to this year’s list of summer reading.
