Be Real. Be Present. Be Joy.

Apr 28, 2023

I have to admit, I like to break the rules.. maybe not rules that involve the safety of another, but things like proper English grammar rules, antiquated etiquette rules. I’m sure that at least one nun forced this point of view, dissecting a sentence, naming parts of speech, how to sit (ankles crossed, how to stand, how to fold your hands) but never once an encouraging word to go move creatively, to go deep into our feelings. I was a creative artist crying to be heard, in my own way. With my own voice. Their point of view caged me like a wild animal in captivity, paralyzed by rules and barriers.

The moment I heard the words of the poet ee cummings, blue true dream of sky. I thanked you god for the most amazing day!

(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows higher than soul can hope or mind can hide). Excerpt from I carry your heart by ee cummings

I'm digging deep once again, returning to my deep-rooted passion to connect with people through food. I'm resisting the dark discouraging words that echo the voice of a nun, and rising up to be me…to be real. To bring joy I’m saying yes to going with the flow, to following the urge, the passion, the root source.

I invite you to join me as I explore the power and joy of preparing seasonal, intentionally sourced foods in your own home.

With love,
