"It would be very nice for nervous types like me if things were black-and-white, and you could tell where one thing ended and the next thing began, but as Einstein taught us, everything in the future and the past is right here now. There’s always something ending and something beginning. Yet in the very center is the truth of your spiritual identity: is you."

Beautiful essay by Anne Lamott on the life’s work of becoming who you are.

Couple with Florence King on how to find yourself, then revisit Lamott’s timeless meditations on why perfectionism kills creativity and how we keep ourselves small by people-pleasing.

I bit the bullet and signed up for a CSA

In, perhaps, a moment of financial irresponsibility. Or maybe it’s the ultimate sign of financial responsibility. It will FORCE me to actually cook the produce each week, and maybe not stop so often at Cava Mezze Grill on my way home from work. (It’s embarrassing how much I go there, but I guarantee it’ll be up in New York within three years and be the *hot* *new* *fast casual* *chain.* Seriously, that shit is delicious.)

Also, I get a discount from my work and they deliver the basket to my desk, so I really have no excuse.

Tomorrow, I will receive, according to the website!:

-Gala apples (handy for the office!)

-Grapes (fuck yeah)

-Red russian kale (COMMUNIST KALE?!??!)

-Jalapenos (fiery!)

-Fairytale eggplant (receiving eggplant in my basket is NOT my idea of a fairytale)

-Heirloom tomatoes (score)

-Red bell peppers (okay)

WISH ME LUCK

Spicy Honey-Brushed Chicken Thighs | MyRecipes.com

This is an excellent and very easy chicken recipe! I will definitely broil chicken more often now. I love that it’s a combination of a dry rub and a honey glaze. :D
