My mother doesn’t talk to the vegetables in the pot; she coos to them. She sings to them, sweet and loving as she stirs them around. She addresses each cut piece of eggplant or zucchini by its own name, making sure there isn’t too much or too little water to soak up the moisture. She coats each piece with its own layer of spices, dabbing into the cupboard every now and then to pull out one of her own concoctions. And then while she lets the pot steam on its own on our black stovetop, she rests, gulping down a glass of ice water in a few seconds and telling me stories.

To love someone in that way other than yourself, you have to have a certain emotional maturity and a certain selflessness. I’m beginning to doubt that I’ll ever be able to achieve either of those qualities.
