December 26 – Soul Food What did you eat this year that you will never forget? What went into your mouth & touched your soul?
I don't have the type of relationship with food that causes it to touch my soul. It's food!
I can't remember any truly ass-over-teakettle food moments this year. I did make sex in a pan for Christmas dessert, which was pretty nice. It's unfortunate that that particular recipe is so dated.
December 27 – Ordinary Joy Our most profound joy is often experienced during ordinary moments. What was one of your most joyful ordinary moments this year?
Sitting with my husband on our new deck on one Sunday morning, before the asshats get out of bed and start their leaf-blowers and muscle cars. I don't even know how we wound up out there together, since he isn't the type to hang around outside. We were just listening to the breeze and the birds in our PJs.
December 28 – Achieve What’s the thing you most want to achieve next year? How do you imagine you’ll feel when you get it? Free? Happy? Complete? Blissful? Write that feeling down.
Putting another drop in the educational ocean. I will feel glad not to have to do that part again, and that's about all. There isn't any bliss involved in that.
