In which our protagonist struggles with the interaction between self-care and world-care
I have a good thing to share with you. Today I received an email from a woman who had seen a particular recipe on my blog that made her cry with happiness. Reason being she recognised immediately that it was from a 1940s cookbook featuring movie star recipes. This book was one of many she lost when her home was burned to the ground during a Californian wildfire in 2018 and she was overjoyed that I had a copy and asked if I would let her know the name of it and the author so that she could try and replace it. Of course I replied immediately and it made me insanely happy to know that I have done a tiny thing to make someone else happy. Good stuff is out there. Now I am gonna make me a cocktail!
Birthday Girl -- thank you so much as always for your vulnerability and honesty. I relate to so many of the things you are feeling and feel better knowing I am not alone in them. Lots of love to you!
