Author, poet, short story writer from Santa Barbara, California. I write about a variety of topics, from my early childhood in Philadelphia, to my years as a family therapist, and finally to my soul-searching present in California. These are narratives that may have a humorous or serious content or both. Either way, I hope my poetry and stories resonate with you.

  1. Yep, it’s that primordial DNA soup, comin’ down, generation to generation. Nice story, and this is definitely soup season!

  2. Beautiful story, Mark. I also believe that the traditional foods of each culture connects us across generations.

  3. I was wondering what “soupy genealogy” would bring me to: a tasty dish with that critical ingredient, love!

  4. Reblogged this on By the Mighty Mumford and commented:

  5. Oh, that’s precious! Each family should have a “genealogy” with their soups. Mine would have it with either Abodinga or menudo. Can you imagine? Especially with the menudo, considering that my Dad is the one that makes it the best!

    • Yes, a lot of history there. That’s for sure.

      • There’s just something about the flavors and the smell of menudo that invoke Family. How everyone gathers around the pot, waiting to get their share. And how many times that happened at camp-outs, especially in the morning as a “hangover cure”. I can attest to that!

      • I can see that when you guys are carefully slurping it down.
