this is my favorite window at home. when I actually stop and look, I get pulled back to the present moment and am reminded of the beauty of the natural world. it invites contemplation. and appreciation.
for our feline family member it likely incites curiosity and longing …

this image also sadly makes me think of my beloved my father who has recently been moved to an assisted living memory care facility. the staff is loving, caring and attentive, the best one could hope for. and yet it’s still not good enough. not what we would want for our loved ones. most of us who have walked this road feel this way.

I see bird feeders and hanging flower baskets outside the windows of each resident, and I understand, and do the same. windows with a view are a blessing, offering a glimpse of beauty, a fleeting escape. and just maybe, for a moment, the longing is replaced by a feeling of joy.

Annapurna Himalayan Range seen from P**n Hill at sunrise.
Tibetan prayer flags blowing in the mind.
What an opportunity. to discover a new land, a new people, to meet myself in a new way.

To feel joy and inspiration alongside fatigue, and at times fear … and to keep going. one leg in front of the other … one stair at a time.

My heart is overflowing.

one of the most picturesque times of the year. short-lived and serene

golden hour in northwest arkansas

on my drive home from fayetteville to eureka springs. the hay bales have always transported me to another time. when life was slower.

feelings of peace and contentment wash over me. and a touch of nostalgia as I remember sunset car time with my children when they were young.

onions stuffed with mashed potatoes and mushrooms

at once satisfying and elegant

recipe by Anthony William in Medical Medium Life Changing Foods

onions, garlic, leeks, shallots, scallions, chives … all part of the Allium family

Alliums contain organosulfur compounds, widely known for their health benefits: antioxidant, antiviral, antibacterial, heart-healthy, cancer preventative and more

do onions make you cry? the same sulfuric compounds that are so beneficial to our health also trigger tears in some when sliced across the grain. I would often teach people that rinsing the onion removes the blinding gas, until I heard Anthony William say that doing so diminishes the beneficial goodness.

we now wear swim goggles when dicing onions. 🤣

is your thyme flowering?

my friend, Sabine, and fellow cooking instructor in Provence shared with me that thyme is most potent when in the flowering stage. harvest now, dehydrate in the oven at 100 degrees (F) and enjoy all year.

Are you wondering what to do with the abundance of local tomatoes? or how best to prepare eggplant?

Don an apron and cook alongside me as we prepare dishes from Southern France, Italy, and Greece using fresh tomatoes from my garden (including San Marzanos, a first for me!)

Delight in caramelized eggplant baked in fresh San Marzano tomato sauce - the perfect marriage made in Greece, and discover tips to make your eggplant a sensation. Our slow-roasted tomatoes topped with plant-based parmesan evoke the South of France, and an Italian millet salad from Sorrento recalls our trip to the Amalfi Coast.
