In With the New

with one comment


It’s inevitable that we greet the new year with the desire to do new things, be new people. For a very long time I did this in the spirit of recrimination, speaking to myself about my goals in ways I’d never speak to others — you’ve been so awful about food, now you’d better shape up. That kind of thing. And then for a while, I just stopped resolving to do new things at the beginning of the year altogether. This avoided the awful feeling of beginning a new project as penance for being a bad person, which is good. But it also made it difficult to take advantage of the momentum that is everywhere these January days.

And so I’ve embarked on a new course:  I want to create a healthy beginning to the year, a beginning that’s full of beauty and interest and inspiration, and a beginning that relies on small things, like a cake plate full of naval oranges.   I’ve sketched out a series of pieces on small things that can mean a lot and I’ll be writing about those for the next few weeks. I’ll have a few lunches in there too, of course.

The first in this series can be found at the Daily Tiffin.

  1. I love the cropped picture of the sun-kissed gleaming oranges on the white pedestal cake platter. Keep those small beautiful, inspiring items coming. With more pictures, of course.
