Covid time baking …Sour Dough &simple white bread

Fresh baked out of the oven ! Nothing like warm and crusty bread … yes, it’s kinda fun… you get to kneed the dough, you get to see it rise and double in size from the initial ball of goo … into this beautiful golden loaf. Simple pleasures discovered during this time of “restrictions”.

When we go back to the way things used to be before March 2020, I really think we are actually going to miss these days of “restrictions” even though people speak of pent up demands for travels and … just socialing in gatherings … the normal stuff. Yes, that might be true but there will be times when we again long for the SLOW days when we had to use our imaginations and creativity to make things… when we had to make efforts to live without all what we took for granted. Yes, more time will be freed up when you don’t have to stand in lines to get into pick up a loaf of bread … more time to get busier and again lose our real pursuits.

Still, I must stay I am ready and I will not go back to exactly the way I was … the last one year was not wasted. No.

Full Moon

It’s that time of the evening where the full moon hangs low over the horizon … where are you all as we gaze up at the moon and what are your thoughts this evening?

Chanting and Moving slowly with mindful reminders with sharpened concentration … the vibe is coming back – what lay dormant over this winter, weighed down by fears and anxiety that could not be quelled with simple reasons alone. We are all on the same boat; we are all on this mother Earth …

Full moon is a time we replenish and fill up with wonder … marveling that in spite of so many losses and tragedies and grief, we still have the capacity to round out the jagged edges and bring to full circle all that wonder into fulfillment of our dreams and hopes. Maybe not this cycle and maybe many moons from now but … I feel in the air, in the sky, in the moon above that … this challenging time is clearly brougt about to help us in the long run. Like this full moon light, many things hidden in the dark shadows are … revealed. Now, what do we do with all that’s been revealed – surely they are not all pretty sights – there’s the good, the bad and the ugly – fully revealed whether you like it or not. Now that much in the hidden corners in the dark shadows are LIT and so much revealed about the world, about US, what are we to do? Go back to our old ways when this is over? Do we go right back to our old ways of seeing and doing and … hiding or do we live that AUTHENTIC truth in alignment to our higher Self. I wonder.
