Art and cooking - two arenas (overlapping) where we can learn our powers of creation and destruction. Feeding oneself appears to be one of the most important skills we can learn as living creatures. Help our little ones become empowered :) Let them say "I made rice!" I made salad" "I made dinner!" "I fed you!" How wonderful to let someone do something you can be grateful for. In cooking and art a great deal in the process is simply accepting that Beauty is. I would think that a great artist would need a great appreciation for shapes and colors, just like a great chef or great eater must have a great appreciation for tastes and ingredients on their own. All people can practice appreciation and gratitude. I'm thankful for this. And food tastes so much better when I'm thankful for it, when I'm whole with it. And I'm most whole when I feel I'm doing good for the body and good for the earth.
Meals, like breaths, are celebrations of the continuity of Life
