no sodium!!!! and Peter Schjedahl , Frank O'Hara, and more

Yes, but not much more! Just told by a visiting nurse yesterday that my husband, just out of the hospital (a nightmare, he says) should. have no sodium, and taking a look at our Progresso Soups and the like, she was categorically in favour of our ridding out pantry and kitchen (well, the same small opening chez nous) of all heavy in sodium products. And she was very convincing (I am easily convinced about things in general, perhaps not always specifically.) so we are ordering things for Boyce my husband like saltines without salted tops!!!!

Those super-delicious Xochitl crackers anew but unsalted (we southerners are very prone to salt!)

Fortunately, Taramosalata, to which we are mildly addicted, comes regular and Light! probably spelled lite, but same thing, different taste. Less oomph, as is true of most unsalted items. Will take getting used to!

Unflagging is/are my recent adoration (s)of Eileen Gray, how not, and anything written by Peter Schjedahl and Christopher Benfey and Brian Dillon, all items by each,  like Peter S's "Hot, Cold, Heavy, Light,, 100 Art WRrtings 1988-2018 and The Hydrogen Jukebox: Selected Writings of Peter Schjeldahl 1978-1990-

and Of course I read Peter S's daughters book: Ada Calhoun's Also a Poet: Frank O'Hara,  my Father,, and Me.Whew!. 

About Frank O'Hara:: How I loved the LunchTime Room in the Modern! I remember asking for the room and the guard saying "Lunch Time" and my assuming she meant it was Time for  her Lunch.
