Simple food. I love and wonder about many things including chocolate (all kinds but mostly dark), tea, heritage wheat, cheese, wine, maple syrup, and good coffee. (Okay, so those of you who know me are now saying, “But she never drinks coffee.” Well…on occasion I do appreciate a good cup). Environmental factors affect a crop’s phenotype and character. I have much to learn about terroir, but over the years experimenting with various crops and ingredients I greatly appreciate the complexity of their life sources and growth.
Simple life. The more I wonder about creation the more simply I desire to live. Reflecting on my life, I can see how my experiences have shaped my character. Life is complex. If I focus on God and keep him in the center, life becomes simpler. And I feel nearer to the heart of God.
