1 A friend passed me this recipe that she had cut out of the paper, thinking I might like to try it and it is wonderful – it tastes as good as it looks! I’ll post up the recipe soon. It is vegetarian and could be gluten free very easily.
2 I first met the poetry of Billy Collins when he did a reading at a poetry event and I just loved what I heard. This poem comes from ‘The Art of Drowning’ and I give you just the first verse. It kind of sums up my philosophy – get the best out of every day – find the beauty that is all around you. Look up the rest of the poem here – it is a delight. The last stanza is especially pleasing.
Each one is a gift, no doubt,
mysteriously placed in your waking hand
or set upon your forehead
moments before you open your eyes.
