The best I can do is recall a moment when I understood I had kept some promise to myself, having to do with learning to see the world differently.
Hello All! Can you believe it's been one year since I began En Temporada? I can't. This year has been outstandingly transformative and as I finished Barbara Kingsolver's Animal, Vegetable, Miracle this morning I had a little cry during a big moment of reflection. With all the changes that I have implemented in the last year, Kingsolver's book and this blog have been there for me. At times, they felt like the only things keeping me grounded. I am so sad to be at the end of this project but am excited and inspired as I move forward. Along this blog's journey, I began a 2nd blog (said she said he) that I will continue with but this will be my last post on En Temporada. What else could I do in honor of this momentous occasion than bake myself a beautiful carrot cake using carrots from one of my many local farmers markets? Happy Birthday En Temporada! You are a blessing.
Oh, and thank you Barbara so very much. You are my hero.
