So one of the reasons why I’ve been so slow with updating Fat & Fatter over the past few months is because I’ve been working on another project. For years, I was frustrated with how difficult it was to research great restaurants when I was planning vacations abroad. Random Google searches and visiting multiple websites to read a bunch of different articles and lists was just too tedious.
I wanted to come up with something that combined my passion for food and dining out, with my first love, journalism. I decided to go directly to top chefs and ask them what their favorite restaurants and dishes were. The recommendations I received were extremely informative, passionate, and more than what I could have ever hoped for. 
Vancouver, BC is the first featured city in this project, and I’ll be updating the website with more interviews in the coming weeks. I wanted to give my followers here a first look! You can find the site here, and please feel free to “like” Eats Abroad’s Facebook page and follow on Twitter. Thanks!

When my husband [Carl Sagan] died, because he was so famous and known for not being a believer, many people would come up to me — it still sometimes happens — and ask me if Carl changed at the end and converted to a belief in an afterlife. They also frequently ask me if I think I will see him again.

Carl faced his death with unflagging courage and never sought refuge in illusions. The tragedy was that we knew we would never see each other again. I don’t ever expect to be reunited with Carl. But, the great thing is that when we were together, for nearly twenty years, we lived with a vivid appreciation of how brief and precious life is. We never trivialized the meaning of death by pretending it was anything other than a final parting. Every single moment that we were alive and we were together was miraculous — not miraculous in the sense of inexplicable or supernatural. We knew we were beneficiaries of chance… That pure chance could be so generous and so kind… That we could find each other, as Carl wrote so beautifully in Cosmos, you know, in the vastness of space and the immensity of time… That we could be together for twenty years. That is something which sustains me and it’s much more meaningful.

The way he treated me and the way I treated him, the way we took care of each other and our family, while he lived. That is so much more important than the idea I will see him someday. I don’t think I’ll ever see Carl again. But I saw him. We saw each other. We found each other in the cosmos, and that was wonderful.

If you look at the fact that you have a roof over your head, food to eat, that you are young and beautiful and live in a peaceful land, then no, you have nothing to be sad about. But the fact is, we are not only a physical body, we have souls too, and sometimes our souls get sick. If you break a leg you don’t just say ‘I have no reason to have a broken leg’ and ignore it; you seek help. It’s the same when your soul gets hurt. Don’t apologize for being sad.
