“Look after the roots of the tree, and the fragrant flower and luscious fruits will grow by themselves. Look after the health of the body, and the fragrance of the mind and richness of the spirit will follow." -B.K.S. Iyengar
Well, I can finally say that I've found my own little kitchen in Seattle. It's bright, cozy, beautiful, and just waiting for me to start creating in it. To say that the past two weeks has been crazy is a major understatement. Moving across the country is no small feat, I tell you! Our belongings arrived in Seattle from New York just three short days ago. Opening boxes full of things that once belonged in New York, and now arranging them into a whole new space feels really weird. It doesn't feel real. And it doesn't quite feel like home yet. I feel very "in-between" if that makes any sense. I hope I can feel a sense of belonging soon. What does feel like home is preparing food again. Having my familiar kitchen tools and cooking beautiful food will help ground me. I'm looking forward to creating again. It feels like it's been forever since I've done that. And being back here on the blog is already making me feel at ease.
I had to share these apples with you today. I found these beauties at an organic co-op and just had to buy them. They're a local heirloom variety apple. Their skin and flesh are the most beautiful shade of rosy pink and their flavor is quite mellow. They make me smile. And that's a good thing.
