“In the time that I have been sitting and looking at the screen or staring off into the seemingly greener grass distance, I could be making scones.”
This is the salvific thought I had this afternoon.
Words are no more at the ready than they were before and my thoughts are no more ordered, but an act of creation has been accomplished and there is something to be said about that.
There is something to be said that something new has been brought into being at my hand and shared with others…something which will bring joy, something which offers interesting flavor for the spirit (cardamon-lime), and something which is even better when accompanied… In this case, by French roast.
Simply said, I feel better, more even, less wrinkly, having created something…having stuck my hands into the essential ingredients, having spooned and folded and zested, having been messy and having cleaned, having learned and having touched the process all the way through.
I am hoping words come again soon… But for now, yes, scones will do…and do nicely.
