My spirit has pulled me this way and that in the last year or so. And I find myself, now, back home again. In the valley. Just outside Paonia, Colorado.
It’s a little bit like heaven on earth. And a bit of a story, too.
The short version is, my heart won out over – logic? We will see, as time goes by. But I look at my promptings, the steps along the way, as synchronistic gifts. What do you think? Take a peek at my new environs. Doesn’t this just RADIATE Pachamama’s Beautiful Food all over??
I pray this magic kitchen will inspire me, and be the place where I see my cookbook published. It feels so good, I love to hang out here, and cook and cook, and cook. New recipes coming soon, I promise.
Today I awoke before dawn, memories of my housewarming party last night tumbling through my head, the sound of rain tapering off from the eaves, and crickets. I still have to blink, several times, and maybe even pinch myself, how quickly this all happened, and that here I am, back, all unpacked, in this beautiful, quirky, inspirational town. Back where I belong.
