on food

What we eat, and how we eat determines how well we live.  Moreover, how our meals are prepared has a significant impact on our well-being.  I’ve long had an interest in food, aromas, food sources, fresh ingredient, and customs around food. In recent years, I’ve come across books and movies dedicated to the subject of food and its impact on our individual and collective well-being.  My recipes fuse love, culture, family traditions, sensory engagement, reflection and memories. I hope I can relay a fraction of the bliss I feel when I prepare a meal.

on life

One life, one love, many experiences..

Love the life you live, and live the life you love..

Be the change you want to see in the world…

Live your present, know your history..

Forgive, do not forget!

on simplicity

Take nothing but photos, leave nothing behind but foot prints

Live simply that others might simply live

Who is rich?  He who rejoices in his portion.

The greatest step towards a life of simplicity is to learn to let go.
Beware the barrenness of a busy life.

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius—and a lot of courage—to move in the opposite direction.

It is in giving that we receive.
