molly wizenberg needs no introduction. as a writer, she is inspiring for her creativity; in her ability to make a metaphor out of anything and relay deeply personal memories to thousands of loyal readers. as a photographer, she always hits a home run. whether with her polaroid or her pentax, the simplicity of her images only give them more meaning and story. on both accounts, i could only dream of capturing food the way she does. thank you for participating, molly!

what are you looking forward to, both personally and creatively, in the coming year? 

"My friend Maria wrote that she wants to give more love in 2010, and I can't think of anything better than that.  It sums up everything I could hope for.  So, to be perfectly unoriginal, I have to say: I am looking forward to giving more love. 

And on the creative side, I'm looking forward to having a better relationship with criticism.  This year, I will believe the good, learn from the bad, and ignore the mean and nasty.  I will, I will, I will."

  1. more love - that's always a good thing.

  2. Giving more love sounds like a good goal. I read a list recently of resolutions around food. I like that too. Not a list, of course, that encourages less food. It was a list that encourages fun food exploration.

  3. more love- i like the sound of that.

  4. I'm so happy I got to go to Molly's restaurant! I really want to go back soon.

  5. oh yes.

    molly's writing is always beautiful and her polaroids are just drop-dead gorgeous.
