Rethinking Elimination

February 16, 2018 | 0 Comments

Thoughts about how well your body is eliminating don’t really make it to the top of your list unless you are faced with a sudden change of too much or not enough. It turns out that your elimination should get as much attention as what you are feeding yourself each day. That is because how…

Heidi Swanson’s Harira

We’ve had a string of cold gloomy days which had me searching for a slightly spicy comfort dish for dinner. When that’s the case it is always Heidi Swanson I turn to for help. It was delicious the first time round and even better as leftovers for Saturday lunch. Here is my adaptation from from…

Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert

The subject of trust is an important one when it comes to creative living. Here’s the conclusion to the post I began last week.

“Make absolutely whatever you want to make. It’s nobody’s business but your own.” ~ Elizabeth Gilbert In living creative lives even with every good intention, the act of granting permission can be paralyzing. Even with a healthy dose of courage summoned and the magical spell of enchantment you can find yourself engaged with an old continuous soundtrack. This tape may claim any of the following: you are not skilled, prepared, perfect, credentialed, as good as, or even deserving of taking…
