Today I was just sitting in my living room, the pain in my chest becoming unbearable, when I decided to go for a hike. So I hopped in my truck and went down to the state park to try and get away from everything. I hiked for a while, coming across mountain bikers and other hikers, until I came to an area devoid of other humans (except for the occasional passer-by). I strayed from the path just a bit to go sit on a large rock in the middle of the fast moving stream. I just wanted to try and clear my head. On the adjacent rock sat a little frog, and he stayed with me the whole time.
As I sat trying to relax, something caught my attention. It sounded like the flow of the stream had changed. I was a bit perplexed, and figured I was just imagining things due to sleep deprivation. But not long after it did it again. I was astonished. Never before in my life had I heard the changing flow of a stream. And then it dawned on me: never before had I stopped long enough to listen. It was then I started to notice the world around me in a constant state of change, from the sunlight coming and going through the trees, to the little fish darting through the water.
I went into nature today and learned two things: 1. Everything is always changing, but the changes are often subtle. The stress of this world can distract us to the point of not even noticing, but that doesn’t mean they’re not there. And 2. Frogs make excellent thinking partners.
Fried Apples served with Vanilla ice cream.
This might be the best thing I’ve ever made with frozen peas (I know, totally unglamorous frozen peas). If you’re up for ripping open a bunch of pea pods, fresh peas are in season right now and would work just as well. So is green garlic, which I used in place of regular garlic cloves. The recipe is simple and straightforward, though I cut down on the number of pots used by cooking half of the peas right in the pot with the pasta and the other half with the garlic.
can we just take a moment to imagine little cute six-year-old hermione reading matilda
and peering into this book about a smart, bookish girl who could move things with her mind
and then can you imagine her concentrating very hard on the books on the bookshelf and slowly, slowly, getting them to move
OH MY GOD
