Jet lag- stuck in two realities, your body is physically in one place, but the mind,spirit and other sundries are the void somewhere between the two. In Japan I was up in the wee hours because back home it was daytime. Now I’m back home and I’m up in the wee hours because in Japan it is daytime. PL Precept # 15 All is a Mirror
I travelled miles, spent hours in the airports, wandered what seems days from one terminal to another. I was in a constant state of “now” yet days later, after finally touching ground and being back on familiar ground, my “now” is still in Japan. PL Precept # 7 Everything exists in Relativity.
Is this the answer at 2:26 in the morning, spaghetti with anchovies, garlic and olive oil. NO. One thing that was made clear to me in Japan, was that I needed to cultivate a healthier way of eating, for me that is portion control.
hmmm, I think its time for me to try to go back to bed and find the door to slumber land. Or I could stay here and be silly with you. For sanity all around, I will go try to catch some zzzzz’s. Although my mind is turning over with thoughts on how jet lag is so much like a state of being in another world, one that is parallel to the one we are in. If only it could be as simple as walking from one room to another, the two worlds are so similar, yet so different. they really are worlds apart. NOW I’m embraced by both, and physically I can only be in one place at a time.

What is for breakfast ? Good morning everyone! I’m going to try once more to show you the first salad that tempted me. For some reason, WP (Word Press) and I were not in sync when I wanted to post this. So here goes..
It worked! good. This recipe was found on foodandwine.com I am going to add hard boiled eggs, after all it will be breakfast. =^_^= I meant to only use this one picture of food, but when I saw all the wonderful ideas using anchovies, I wanted to share them. I do recognize that there are a lot of people who do not enjoy anchovies but then, vive la difference!
Today the meditation was about beginning each new day with a renewed sense of appreciation. I looked at my desk and found a package from the anchovies I brought back from my trip to the States the other day. Hmm yum, anchovies with capers in pure olive oil, usually I get the little fillets and use them to season my cooking and for a special treat I will do them with cloves of fresh garlic and toss that over pasta with hot chilies …(see recipe below) That got my morning thoughts interested in satisfying my taste bud. I did my best to ignore Canaille’s big brown eyes looking up at me expectantly, (Canaille is our Porti, Portuguese Water Dog) it didn’t work, mindful of her empty tummy I couldn’t very well keep teasing mine with the sight and possibility of food, and not respond to my ‘baby”. so rest easy, I took time to feed the dogs.
Such is life isn’t it, we start out with good intentions, but often our thoughts are diverted, or our attention, and we need to pause and do something else. But with a purpose, if we are dedicated to the task at hand, we finish what we started, we return to our project and we pick up where we left off. The key to achieving something is to stick to it. Don’t give up! Keep at it until you’ve accomplished what you started.
Now, I’ve posted some goodies for you to enjoy, maybe you’ll be tempted too. For now, I bid you a good day, I’m off to start my day, and decide just what I will delight my taste buds with on this beautiful sunny Sunday! Blessings all.. Oyashikiri
