...a hermit iconoclast



...a study in self actualization, December 30, 2016

It dawns on you as a gentle sunrise. What is encompassed cannot be described. As the rays of warmth and clarity join with your being, you contemplate the sublime.

After a time I came to realize that one can fall in love at a late age. This startled me. I did not think it possible. This poem was the result. However, the wonderful and sometimes painful occurences of love in ones life should not apply to oneself. After all wherever you go there you are... Charity begins at home. One must love oneself before going abroad. Also, love is a verb. This Blog will on occasion explore that verb as it pertains to my self actualization which began when the focus of this poem became one of personal well being.

Many consider Cake a treat. However, kale would be the treat of wellbeing. Food is fuel for the body. In the current obesity epidemic the taste of food is valued far above foods actual true merits. "Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food" is prudent consul and a act of the self loving verb.

Crockpots are truly wonderful devices. When properly deployed they can give the illusion of amazing time compression. With enough water a crockpot can turn lima beans, onions, garlic, salt, and pepper into a very tasty meal base for a week.

My approach is to drink plenty of water before bed time, start the crockpot and during the night whenever nature calls the wondrous aroma prompts me to check the water level of the crockpot.

A fluid paradox that leads to a week's worth of creamy lima beans in what feels like no time.
