Day Two: Write a List

KODAK Digital Still Camera
Write a list? Things I’ve LEARNED? Um…

  1. Often food is better in combinations : bitter coffee and a buttery crisp pastry, a sweet figgy preserve with smelly cheese, warm tender lamb with tart orange peel.
  2. Contrasts create memories that evoke the senses : a cold glass of wine on a warm stoep, the immovable underfoot rock that resists churning storm waves, a cold grey blanket of thunderstorm above the hot rust carpet of savannah.
  3. Motherhood embraces the worst and the best in human experiences.
  4. Some people will never change, others are transformed and it happens either in a split second or over a lifetime.
  5. I thought by now I’d know myself but I’m still learning I think.
