"Flare up like a flame and make big shadows I can move in. Let everything happen to you, beauty and terror. Just keep going, no feeling is final.... Nearby is the country they call life. You will know it by it's seriousness. Give me your hand."
Rilke (Whole poem is here)
I fell down a rabbit hole today...
In a round about way, I ended up looking at this recipe for chickpea tofu, also known as Burmese tofu (another recipe, more complex but of interest here). Quick trip to the grocery store for some Garbanzo flour and I had this for lunch:
Chickpea tofu fried in olive oil topped with roasted winter squash and tomato sauce.
Bottom line...I will be making this on a regular basis. I'm having all kinds of fun imagining toppings.
It is such a gift how things can be the same and different. It would be a much less interesting world without this.
There should always be moments of joy and time to play.
