take care

I just read about how making food can be "a way to do your best while helping your fellows". Its true. I think there is nothing more comforting than cooking with a friend if you're feeling sad, and cooking a meal for someone who is going through a tough time seems a rather primal impulse to me. Its a combination of being simultaneously distracted and focused, the sense of accomplishment you get while eating something divine you created, nourishment (as my Mum would say, its "good for the soul"), being able to legitimately cry while slicing onions and, um, bonhomie, I think.
