August Photo-A-Day: It's Dinner Time!

"There is only one difference between a long life and a good dinner: that, in the dinner, the sweets come last." Robert Louis Stevenson  

 What is the most popular meal of the day in your home? Dinner is a very important meal  in many household because it happens to be one meal that families gather around the dining table to enjoy. Often, we are in a rush to have breakfast, we eat lunch at our desks or in the school cafeteria and at the end of the day, we come home to enjoy the evening with family and,hopefully, enjoy a meal together.

I love dinner time because most of my dinner dishes fall in the category of comfort foods; hearty, satisfying, family dishes that remain popular form generation to generation. The dish above is brown rice with sauteed fresh vegetables. Sometimes we have a salad on the side and always some form of protein, preferably fish... I run a meatless household. Oh yes, let's not forget dessert! What do you enjoy at dinner?

Gratitude: Moving Forward In All Things...

"Don't dwell on what went wrong. Instead, focus on what to do next. Spend your energies on moving forward toward finding the answer." Denis Waitley  Follow my blog with Bloglovin
Gratitude: Like the SuperMoon, all things change

 Did you see the Supermoon on August 10th?  It was a huge moon shining bright in the sky and, because it was closer to earth than your average moon, you could feel the power of its presence.  Some believe that when such occurrences happen, there is a shift on earth and dramatic events take place.  Whether it is true or not, what it augurs is a reminder that change is a constant in our lives and we must flow with the tide. There are times to shine and times to retreat; a grateful heart makes the changes easier on our psyche.  I have spent a good portion of this year in retreat and, while I have legitimate grounds for my quietude, I know it is time to move forward and reconnect with the creative side of my spirit. My return hasn't been easy as there is so much to do. Yet, I know that all things, like the moon, change and that patience and gratitude will take me where I need to be. What about you?

"We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths." Walt Disney 

  Why am I making comparisons to the Supermoon? Because it is a perfect example of how everything that connects us on earth moves forward.  The term was coined by an astrologer, Richard Nolle, who believed that " the upcoming full moon “lunar perigee” – the point in which the moon’s orbit is closest to the earth – will bring an array of disastrous events when it is a mere 221,567 miles away."  While we have witnessed the passing of two beloved actors, Robin Williams and Lauren Bacall, in the last 48 hours, in my opinion, the moon phases serve as a catalyst for change. The new moon awakens something deep in our spirit and reminds us to stretch ourselves and move forward. What are you resisting? What is shining before you that needs your attention? It could be mental, emotional, material or spiritual. Only we know and, with a bit of shift in our thinking, our challenges can be faced with less fear.
