I’m always going on about the Universe this and the Universe that and how the Universe knows when things need to happen and why. Of course, it’s much easier when the Universe allows me to help other people see this in their lives, not so much when I need to see it in my own. But that’s exactly what’s happening. And it is ironic that what got me thinking about all this was a post I read over at Bon Appetempt talking about why we cook. That led me to pay a visit to Mr. Ruhlman and Ms. Reichel and made me stop and ask myself why I cook. And I kept coming up with the same answers. I cook because that is how I show that I care. I cook because it nourishes the people that I love. I give of myself when I cook in one of the few ways that I really know how to share what’s in my heart, especially when I don’t have the courage to find the words to express my feelings.
But the Universe has decided to challenge me to find other ways to share what’s in my heart. And for the time being, that means that I need to focus myself on the people in my world, to be present with them, to find the words before it’s too late to say them. So I’m going to take a step back for now and go where the Universe says I need to be.
There are still new posts scheduled to go live here at BAH for a while, as well as all of the Exit 51 archives on Flashback Friday. And I hope to be back soon to cooking and writing and commenting and following along with your adventures. Until then, Bon Appetit Hon.
