yum


panzetta, originally uploaded by Justin Davis Davanzo.

it is so easy to get overwhelmed with the many things we have to do and want to do every day in life...there are just too many things on the plate. Like the plate in the picture though, it may seem like a bunch of random things thrown together, but really, it has been carefully prepared, planned and thought out and in the end this will be an empty plate because it is so tasty..but only because all the things on the plate were meant to be there and they all made friends with the other things on the plate and their juices came together and mixed and melted and became one...making the ultimate outcome a taste extravaganza..sort of like our daily life with all the things on our plates..all the things that make up our daily moments and experiences that will propel us down the path we want to be on and the delicious walk of life that is full of all things creative, confusing, overwhelming, difficult to understand, tiring, joyful...they will all come together and create the perfect blend of life that will taste just the way it is meant to taste through careful design (that of which we are not fully aware of) and it will happen over and over and over...I like to call it "A big dish of overwhelmed pie"....so, next time you feel overwhelmed, make sure to check the oven and take a big wiff of the ingredients cooking slowly (ok, if you are having a shitty day at this point, something is for sure needing to be adjusted) and remember that in the end, it was all part of the grand plan in the cook book of life...page 293..mark it with one of those string things attached to the cookbook so you don't lose your place and then you can cook that dish over and over when ever you want...mmmm....i like the sound of it .

love and understanding.
