These bags were goatskin leather with a resin liner to make them liquid tight. This
would be the best wine Don Luis would ever taste in his life. One of the servants
announced that their dinner was ready. It had been, in fact, ready for sometime
awaiting the last of their guests. The dining room and kitchen were across the
courtyard and did not have the fine view of the other living spaces. Fresh fragrant
candles had been lit and the table was set for eight. The empty place at the table

CHAPTER SIX THE EMPTY PLACE It all started with an empty place at the
dinner table at the Mission House. Usually we all are lunch together at a large
wooden square table in a room rather grandly referred to as the 'refectory' even
though it would have been a bit poky as a dining room in a Country vicarage. The
unspoken rule was that we all sat in the same places; there was quiet
consternation and a gentle whispered correction when an unsuspecting visitor
happened to sit in one ...

While lingering at the court, Perceval asks at the evening meal about the
meaning of the empty place and begs permission to seat himself there,
threatening departure should this be denied him. The King ... As we have seen,
Merlin has already advised Arthur concerning the establishment of the Round
Table; he has also mentioned the motif of Judas and has said that the empty seat,
the siege perilleux, will be occupied for the first time by a knight who has found
the Grail. By seating ...

The gala dinner at Martha's did not turn out to be the affair it was meant to be. All
the tables being reserved for the supposedly numerous dance troupe, the empty
restaurant had a somewhat desolate air despite the radiant presence of a large
bouquet of white cluster chrysanthemums in a cut-glass vase on the round table
in the centre. Martha had set the long table by the window for the chief guests
and the Committee Members and there they now sat. An empty place at the table
had ...

“Maybe it's for Nick,” Smitty said. “Maybe it's for Elijah,” I said, referring to the
custom at the Passover table, but nobody got the joke. A man in a red jacket,
came to our table without being seen by anyone. “Miss Strickland, Misses
Kompsii requests your presence at the head table,” he said after bowing. I rose
from my chair and curtsied. The man accompanied me to the head table and
announced my name, causing everyone to rise as I stepped to the empty place at
the table. I had to bite ...

wait for the master, but to their surprise she rang a small bell which was at the
side of her table setting. Two pretty young maids entered with loaded trays,
arranging dishes of food on the table. The smell was mouth watering. “Help
yourselves,” encouraged Sarita Arj. The twins looked towards the empty place at
the end of the table. “Oh, don't worry, I doubt very much if Zalund Arj will join us

Make your life a duty-free zone! Isn't that the way to find the blessed solitude that
invites the presence of God? But while we need moments of solitude and
reflection to feed our souls, most of us find our experiences of growth in the
fulfillment of duties assigned and routines honored. A centuries-old Jewish
custom requires each family to observe the Passover at a meal, with the whole
family gathered around a table. But there is always an empty place at the table,
with an unoccupied ...

the empty place at the table with lowered and solemn eyes. We finish our lunch
and I help gather our dishes. I pretend not to notice the unused place setting. I
help wash and dry and put the dishes away in the sagging cupboards. There is a
1945 calendar from El Charro Restaurant with a painting of Popocatepetl and
Ixtaccihuatl — the star-crossed Aztec lovers — hanging on the wall above the
sink. We are both lost in thought as we finish the kitchen chores. "Nina," I ask at
last. "Yes ...

Our daughters were born within thirteen days of each other (in a fateful echo of
John and Mark's birthdates, which are ten days apart), so over the past five years
we had compared everything from shit-viscosity to ferocity of tantrums and all the
delights in between. We'd been on holidays together, we witnessed John's
proposal to Fran on the steps of the Sacré Coeur. Consequently, the empty place
opposite me at the table that lunchtime seemed to be waggling its dick at me
