Life has a way of never working out the way we planned. This is the second week in a row of not getting to work on my novel that's due June 1 due to some mysterious virus thing that is making its rounds through the house, kid by kid. Which also means, I've not had much time to write on this blog either. It really means I've not had much time to do a lot of things.
Isn't that just the way life is? Full of highs and lows, unmet expectations and serendipitous surprises all jumbled up into this big cauldron of feelings and emotions and doubts and certainties, continually being stirred up so no ingredient is allowed to settle to the bottom. Sometimes the bites we take are salty, sometimes they're sweet, sometimes even bitter. But it's the range of tastes that make for an exotic, flavorful meal.
And with that, I think I will go have some lunch. Some bitter greens, some sweet strawberries, some smooth olive oil, some tangy vinegar, some crunchy almonds... life in a bowl. I plan to savor every bite.
