A Tribute And Peach Cobbler For Selma

I am so saddened by the news today of a blogger friend’s passing, Selma at Selma’s Table.  I did not know Selma well, only through Fiesta Friday, but I could tell right away that she was a beautiful person.  A very warm and caring person who loved to live life.  When I would talk to Selma through our post, she always made me feel like I was part of her family.  I guess, in a way, I was …we all were.  We are all a part of a blogging family.  I never thought that I would feel a bond with her, nor any of the virtual friends I have met, but I do.  We do have a wonderful community here on WordPress and especially our little Fiesta Friday group.  What a kind, caring, supportive group of people we have at Fiesta Friday and Selma was a big part of this.  She was always there with a tip, great recipe or advice when you needed it.  She was a fabulous co host and more.  I know that she will be missed dearly and there will be an empty spot at our table and in our hearts.

 

 

 

I love poetry and chose several poems that I thought were fitting for Selma, to honor and pay tribute to her.  Selma was the type of person that stood out of the crowd because she was special.  Special to all of us here at Fiesta Friday, and I know I will miss seeing her wonderful post.  I am glad I met Selma, if only virtually.  If you have a moment, stop and check out her blog, Selma’s Table and please do come with us as we celebrate Selma and Fiesta Friday.

Love to all!

  2. Tagore’s poem is perfect, thank you. Poetry is so helpful when we can’t bring our own words gracefully to our emotional experiences especially when dealing with sickness and death. I love your new little avatar, the waving cowgirl! Thank you for this post and the wonderful summery fruity delicious cobbler!
