I don’t know if you saw that movie, the Unbearable Lightness of Being. They made a rough approximation of the book starring Daniel day Lewis. It’s only now in my 50’s that I have an understanding of all of the themes of the book. The book was wonderful, rich and nourishing to the soul.

My days are lighter than usual, and the weather is soft and welcoming. Berries are in season, and I haven’t even picked any yet. I think I need to make a pie and freeze it for my kids to enjoy.

I haven’t been baking – or cooking – much. But now with the kids gone, and my Sweetie back in Baltimore I am finally relaxing into a non-schedule of floating where I will.

It’s good stuff. I’m going to try and do much more of it this weekend.
