"Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn,
a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter.
If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things,
this is the best season of your life."
~ Wu Men, translated by Stephen Mitchell
I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving and Hanukkah! Did you partake in the black Friday madness? I never venture out on that day. Large crowds of snarling people make the introvert in me want to run away...far, far away to cosy cabin (at twilight) somewhere in the Rockies, where I'll be greeted by the braying of sheep, one grey donkey and, depending on the season, a roaring fire.
For one of my Thanksgiving desserts I dusted off the recipe archive and paid a visit to a beloved, nearly-forgotten recipe. Thanksgiving feels like it was a week ago already - fortunately I still have a few cranberry bars leftover to ground my spaced out, mountain-bound mind.
