As I reached the summit of a mountain in New Hampshire this summer I found a batch of berries. I sat next to them, pulled out my journal, and started writing....
It is a beautiful and perfect summer day. The blazing sun shines down upon my body warming me like a mother tightly holding her child. A gentle breeze passes by tousling my hair and whispering into my ears a lovely song. In front of my eyes is a gnarly patch of berries seducing me with their wild yet grounded demeanor. I give in and fall under their spell. The plump and juicy berries stain my fingers as I zealously pluck them from the comforts of their home. Their tart taste dances upon my lips making me feel alive. My senses are overwhelmed and my soul is filled with joy. Ahhh, the simple pleasures of life.
This moment reminded me that...
Food is life. Food is nurturing. Food is peace. Food is joy. Food is love. Food is forgiving. Food is excitement. Food is family. Food is art. Food is fuel. Food is comfort. Food is enjoyment. Food is soul.
What is food to you? And how often do you take time to remember how glorious and blessed you are to be able to appreciate the beauty and bounty of food?
I hope every single day.
Love food. Love life. Love YOU.
