Soba Noodles

My good friend Aki sent this link, I never knew how to make soba
noodles properly and always had the bland floury taste. This is a
great site and helps a ton...I have been dreaming about Japan
lately...i wonder why.....

Guest House-rumi

Guest House

This being human is a guest house
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.
Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.

RUMI

Voir Un Ami Pleurer

Every moment I breath, is a test...it is a test of my strength,
courage and how well I can manage to live in that moment...without
getting caught up in fears, pain, past dramas, depressions,
assumptions, perceptions, no judgement, no pity, no better or worse.
Every beautiful being in this world passes in front of us waiting to
be touched, heard and felt...In that exact second we see the beauty of
love, beauty of being alive and feel grateful for being part of this
universe. Today I am sad, I am sad to let go of a friend...l in a
relationship that was very important to me...many days of hard work,
tests of depression, happiness, love, many many recipes of beautiful
food, groups....It hurts.......sure there are others.....sure the sun
will rise again........but today I am sad and it is painful.......

in the meantime listening a beautiful song Michel sent me.....
