we were in between nor’easters. feeling restless, we packed our toothbrushes, hopped in the car and drove to Maine. with no particular destination in mind, we ended up in Portland for the night. we walked all over the city, people watching, testing out some local culinary goodness, just enjoying being by the sea. there is a sense of randomness and freedom in taking little trips like this..and somehow it got me to thinking about my work. I want that sense of freedom and randomness here too. I don’t want my work to be measured in number of “likes”. I’ve been thinking about this for a long time now and I’m finally disabling the “like” and “comment” buttons. It’s so wonderful if you enjoy visiting here and even more wonderful that no one should feel the pressure to always comment or press that little like button. so from now on, this will be a pressure free site.
should you have a question or concern, you may always email me, my address is on my home page.
I’m doing my work, then stepping back..
Fill your bowl to the brim and it will spill.
Keep sharpening your knife and it will blunt.
Chase after money and security and your heart will never unclench.
Care about people’s approval and you will be their prisoner.
Do your work, then step back.
The only path to serenity.

“Because we need a little Christmas…”
I will be going full force in the kitchen starting tomorrow with all the holiday baking. And then there’s all that wrapping I have left to do.
So I’m popping in a day early to wish you all a lovely weekend.

“Every person needs to take one day away. A day in which one consciously separates the past from the future. Jobs, family, employers, and friends can exist one day without any one of us, and if our egos permit us to confess, they could exist eternally in our absence. Each person deserves a day away in which no problems are confronted, no solutions searched for. Each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us.”
~ Maya Angelou
Happy weekend, friends!
