Chances in Life {Thoughts on the Secret Life of Walter Mitty}

distraction m davidsonI am deeply moved by words and various forms of music.  So when we had a virtual movie night in the Story Sessions community, I was quite surprised.  I was surprised because I found that I actually liked The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.  I’ve taught the original James Thurber short story, so I was a bit biased.  My story sisters raved about the film, so I thought I’d join.  Best.  Decision.  Ever.

Art Everyday Month – Day 5

The art of food.

I like to eat.  Eat to live.  Live to eat.  I’m not always an adventurous eater, but every now and then I’ll try something new.

Tonight, it’s Korean soup.  I couldn’t tell you the name of it.  I can only tell you that it sure was dang tasty and spicy.  I tried a sample of it at a place called H-Mart – a local grocery store specializing in all sorts of Asian foods.  I figured it would be cool to try; plus I was starving.  {Note to self – never go shopping when you’re hungry.}

I liked it enough to buy a pack.  I wish I’d thought to take pictures before I cooked it, but oh well.  Here’s what it looked like when it was done.

Maybe if we’re willing to try new things, our horizons will expand.  We’ll find hidden treasure in the diversity among us.  We’ll step into someone else’s story.  We’ll experience a different kind of community that opens our hearts to loving without condition.

Perhaps that is the real power behind the art of food.  It creates connection and belonging in ways we cannot imagine.  So, here’s to the adventure of living life more fully and tasting all it has to offer.

You’ll find more artists crafting their everyday creative.  Explore the community.
