I had Irish soda bread for the first time yesterday! I am hooked! I need to learn how to make it myself. It was beyond amazing! It’s easy to make and lovely to behold. What I really like is that you get to form the loaf with your hands and bake and plop it on a baking sheet. I love free-form art like this. It looks so peasant-ish. Probably because it’s peasant food.
Amazingly good and simple
The older I get, the simpler I want my life to be. I rather like that approach. I am tired of high-maintenance processes and people. I am tired of drama and fuss. I love being quiet with my thoughts and actions. I love getting lost in a book or just driving alone for hours. The older I get, the less I need. The older I get, the less I want. I guess it’s good when your needs and wants get closer together. That’s a sure-fire way to be happy.
Sometimes, it’s okay to walk away from something you want or desire because the emotional price is too high. It makes our choices easier. I have also learned it’s better to have nothing than have the wrong something. When you have nothing, the world is completely and totally open to you. When you have the wrong something, you have to undo and deconstruct first. It’s like trying to paint your living room without removing the furniture. It’s much better if the room is empty to start with.
Gosh, the philosophy just rolls out this morning. Must be the iced coffee I saved from yesterday.
