Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.
Hippocrates, Greek physician (460-370 B.C.)
A tough week of working extended hours and facing commuting nightmares left my soul feeling rather weary at the end of day, so I treated myself to a little culinary therapy. Good food and a glass of wine at the neighbourhood Italian restaurant soothed my spirit. I walked home with a smile and the renewed belief that life is good. I just needed to remind myself.
Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.
Dr. Seuss (Theodor Seuss Geisel), American writer and illustrator (1904-1991)
While officially there might be 17 days left in summer, Labour Day marks its end in my psyche. As a fitting conclusion to what feels like the briefest of seasons, Cat and I enjoyed a laid-back, final gin and tonic. An empty gin bottle most certainly marks summer's end. Cheers to Summer! See you next year! :-)
More than a year has passed since I began documenting everyday things that bring me joy. I have proved to myself that, no matter how inconsequential, each day is special. I plan to continue my quest to find wonder. Stay tuned. Only God knows where I will find myself!
