The Epiphany

Aaah, summer – that long anticipated stretch of lazy, lingering days, free of responsibility and rife with possibility…

Deep summer is when laziness finds respectability.
– Sam Keen

…You learn a lot about someone when you share a meal together…

 

Food is everything we are. It’s an extension of nationalist feeling, ethnic feeling, your personal history, your province, your region, your tribe, your grandma. It’s inseparable from those from the get-go. – Anthony Bourdain
This is a bit of a different type of post from me. Anthony Bourdain passed away on June 8, 2018. He was one of my favorite chefs to follow and to watch. With the increase of celebrities/people in the media taking their lives over the past few years; it goes to show that on the outside a person can appear to have everything but you don’t know about the personal struggles that they may be going through. I myself have these types of struggles, I have for many years.
If you or someone that you know need help, please reach out.

Here we are, trapped in the amber of the moment. There is no why.

“It lay heavily in her hands, the crystal face gleaming, the golden body exquisitely machined. It was very like a clock, or a compass, for there were hands pointing to places around the dial, but instead of the hours or the points of the compass there were several little pictures, each of them painted with extraordinary precision, as if on ivory with the finest and slenderest sable brush.” – Phillip Pullman, The Golden Compass

Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. – George Eliot
