i picked this image to post… just because.
it was taken in 2008.
this machine presses the pasta dough thinner and cuts it into log strips,
by feeding the dough into the top and turning the crank.
this pasta with some garlic and clams,
or maybe a deep red tomato sauce.
a bunch of us sitting around a big table, passing bowls,
bread, and butter to one another, gabbing up a storm.
that thought just makes me grin.
