Watching the Future Unfold

leftovers
Leftovers are great for contemplating the future. Less work and business leaves more time for philosophy. This was a variation of a salad I made for my TASTING EVENT.

My boyfriend took this beautiful picture. It looks innocuous enough, but it’s actually a huge milestone in our juicing experience. In the past, our tendency would be to mix these drinks together to make sludge. My boyfriend is all about maximizing nutritional density which I can appreciate. But not when it tastes bad. Yesterday I convinced him to make two separate drinks, and they were AMAZING! One was a spicy green concoction with lime, cucumber, ginger, cilantro, and wheatgrass. The other was lime, carrot, and ginger. Two great tastes that DON’T taste great together. 🙂

Wheatgrass is also great for healing scars. My overly active immune system has a proclivity towards scarring. Little scrapes take months to heal. Wheatgrass noticeably improves the healing process. Apparently, they used to use it for wound healing way back when.

blossomsIt’s supposed to snow tonight! That’s Minnesota weather for you. The CHERRY BLOSSOMS have already come and gone, and now it’s going to snow. My boyfriend took this picture of me with the infamous blossoms to send to my mom.  Speaking of (SCREAMING) CHERRY BLOSSOMS, I’ve started playing guitar again. I brought my guitar down to OKLAHOMA with good intentions, but I was a lot busier than I thought I would be! It’s good to be back in my element again.

setlist I played a solo show last week, and my boyfriend took a picture of the setlist on my arm. Since my health isn’t really good enough yet to pursue my musical ambitions fully, I decided to start working on my chops. Yesterday was my first guitar lesson with my favorite guitar player in Minneapolis! You can check out his cool, green guitar in this VIDEO. I’m pretty sure that having a green guitar is eco-friendly! 🙂

In the meantime, I am patiently waiting for the future to unfold. Not as patiently as I would like, mind you. The hardest part about change (for me) is that it always seems to take longer than you think it should. It’s human nature, I think, to want to fill in the gap that you have to leave open for it. It feels so uncertain and vulnerable sometimes that a person yearns for the comfort of certainty. But I’m determined this time to let things play out as they should. I have a good feeling that everything is going to work out beautifully. I just need to give things their due time and space to unfold.

I got some nods of affirmation this week. I was listed on MASALA (the finest mix of holistic living blogs) in the ‘friends’ category, and I was also listed as one of the TOP 50 RAW FOOD BLOGS! HOORAY!
