- December 4 – Wonder
Wonder. How did you cultivate a sense of wonder in your life this year? (Author: Jeffrey Davis)
This year I started to enjoy cooking, something I never thought I would say. It came about (indirectly) through getting back to yoga, like many things this year. I read an article in a spring issue of Yoga Journal about soup – the writer’s description of finding joy in cooking really amazed me. I had started to see food in different ways before this, having gone from coffee to tea last February and eating more living foods in general. But after reading this article, I was sort of in awe of food. The mystery of cooking started to seem like something accessible to me.
I started to cook. Some simple things. With recipes, ALWAYS with recipes. I asked my husband for help – he knows how to cook and I am not afraid to ask him how to boil water if I don’t know how. Kidding, I know how to boil water
But when I cook, I am truly a beginner. I am open to suggestions, even…criticism? Yes, I don’t care if you tell me it sucks. I am learning, I expect for some things to suck. I am a little like a small child when it comes to knowing what to do in the kitchen. I am not afraid to ask in the grocery store what fennel is – I honestly don’t know and I can only find out by asking.
I wonder about all things food.
