Life is a Stew

Posted on

Today is a little rainy, a little overcast and a little melancholy.  Today is quiet, lazy, peaceful, restful and reflective.  Today is a good day.  Today is a  good ingredient for my life.

I’ve been thinking lately of how, “a good life, is like a good recipe”.  A good recipe starts with good ingredients, you add the spices, you prepare the dish then you serve it up with  a large helping of love.  A good life is much the same ; the recipe is made up of days, spiced with family, friends, co workers, strangers, chance meetings and random encounters.  It takes years to prepare, but the final product is always good if served with a lot of love.  When served in the right portions, there’s room for dessert,  and it will taste like, ” a little slice of heaven”.

I know the metaphor is a little weak and could use a little spicing up of it's own...but it gave me the opportunity to use this photograph of the ingredients of my beef stew.
