- Nature's Perfect Food -
This picture was submitted to "Black & White Wednesday", an event created by Susan at "The Well-Seasoned Cook". This week it is hosted by Lynne "Cafe Lynnylu" (click here in order to see who is hosting the next roundup).
She turned to the sunlightIt’s official, spring is finally upon us! One must be a fool not to have witnessed nature’s boisterous reawakening. The signs are omnipresent and unless you live in a cave or you are deaf, dumb and blind (not in the medical sense, but in the spiritual one), it is quite impossible to miss them.
And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbor:
Winter is dead.

It is spring again. The earth is like a child that knows poems by heart.
- Rainer Maria Rilke
Spring drew on...and a greenness grew over those brown beds, which, freshening daily, suggested the thought that Hope traversed them at night, and left each morning brighter traces of her steps.I find this time of the year quite thrilling, revitalizing and inspiring as once more life takes over and grim darkness, decay and silence is supplanted by bright light, joyfullness, efflorescence and excitement. After an extensive period of hibernation, suddenly each living being, without exception, is shaken from its torpor and fuelled with new energy.
- Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

En tout être comme en toute chose se côtoient et s’imbriquent Lumière et Ténèbres. Dans une datte que vous croquez, la chair nourrit votre corps, mais le goût suave et le parfum et la couleur nourrissent votre esprit. La Lumière qui est en vous se nourrit de beauté et de connaissance, songez à la nourrir sans arrêt, ne vous contentez pas de gaver le corps.Speaking of time passing fastly, Easter is once again upon us and I hope that you all have wonderful plans for the long weekend ahead. Well, in case you still don’t know what treat or snack to prepare for the April celebrations, you might be interested in giving my “Hazelnut Date Truffles” a try.
