✒️ Writers’ Wisdom ~ Feel the Rain

“Good writing is supposed to evoke sensation in the reader – not the fact that it is raining, but the feeling of being rained upon.” ~ E. L. Doctorow

🍎 Today’s Health Tip ~ Show the Slow Cooker Some Love

Use The Slow Cooker


During the hot days of summer, a hot kitchen is one of the last places you want to . One of the easiest pieces of equipment you can use instead of the oven is a slow cooker. It’s also extremely affordable. Make a healthy chili, soup, stew, risotto, brisket or other delicious dish in a flash by adding the recipe ingredients to the slow cooker, stirring them and setting the machine on “cook.” When you return from work, you’ll have a mouthwatering meal waiting for you. Yes, it’s that easy.


I use my slow cooker to make a great meatless lentil chili. It’s a half hour prep and I get to enjoy the fragrance all through the day. Yummo!


Today’s Poem ~ A Pinch of Salt

A Pinch of Salt

Robert Graves

When a dream is born in you
With a sudden clamorous pain,
When you know the dream is true
And lovely, with no flaw nor stain,
O then, be careful, or with sudden clutch
You'll hurt the delicate thing you prize so much.

Dreams are like a bird that mocks,
Flirting the feathers of his tail.
When you seize at the salt-box
Over the hedge you'll see him sail.
Old birds are neither caught with salt nor chaff:
They watch you from the apple bough and laugh.

Poet, never chase the dream.
Laugh yourself and turn away.
Mask your hunger, let it seem
Small matter if he come or stay;
But when he nestles in your hand at last,
Close up your fingers tight and hold him fast.

“The same stream of life that runs through my veins night and day runs through the world and dances in rhythmic measures. It is the same life that shoots in joy through the dust of the earth in numberless blades of grass and breaks into tumultuous waves of leaves and flowers.” ~ Tagore
