Personal Notes:
When preparing dumplings one must feel joyous. If the preparer of the dumplings is terrified, the dish will come out as a unattractive mess. Dumplings can bring good luck--at least, that was James' firm belief and Katharine's too, although she hadn't given it credit in some time. My father closed his eyes each time he took a bite from the dumpling. Life would be much nicer if one could carry the smells and tastes of the dumpling wherever one pleased. Dumplings are soft to the touch like a baby's hand. After one bite, it is a explosion of juices in my mouth.
