There is nothing scarier than watching a nine year old learn how to cut an onion. Maybe if you're like me you can see the strange beauty in it also. Food is who I am. It's poetry I can pass on to my children. I can do some things like take a decent picture once in a while, string some words together to put it into my blog. But I don't have the patience or romance to make it as beautiful as it deserves to be. I am hopefully making it funny and entertaining enough to get you to come back.
But food.... this is something I can do. We instinctively learn there are three things that keep you alive. Oxygen, water, and food. Oxygen, you cannot see so we take it for granted. Water, the beauty of water is everywhere and in many different forms. Without those two, yes you will parish. But food... food is something that takes time and care and thoughtfulness. With food I am shopping for it, prepping it and cooking it to show you that I love and care about you. I will take my time and do something to keep you here with me. Nourishment for the mind and soul. It's the one thing I can show my kids the beauty in and pass on to them. It's my poetry.
