Do not ask your children
to strive for extraordinary lives.
Such striving may seem admirable,
but it is the way of foolishness.
Help them instead to find the wonder
and the marvel of an ordinary life.
Show them the joy of tasting
tomatoes, apples and pears.
Show them how to cry
when pets and people die.
Show them the infinite pleasure
in the touch of a hand.
And make the ordinary come alive for them.
The extraordinary will take care of itself.
Today I couldn’t figure out whether I was in high school or at work. Tomorrow I will be keeping my head down and if anyone pisses me off, god help them.

One of my new lunchtime obsessions is a big, heaping spoonful of ricotta cheese paired with tart slices of blood orange. Relatively healthy while at the same time filling; a win/win in my book.
I know to some folks this might fall on the opposite spectrum of “yummy” but I quite enjoy this concoction.
(pardon my wonky thumb in the photo but someone had to hold the Tupperware // this accompanied an artichoke & hearts of palm salad for my “total” lunch package))
