But the experience of biting into this delicacy reminds me that when big things in life are too big, when problems loom and days are long, throwing four ingredients together can give us a new perspective. The big things in life, really aren’t that big of deal; the problems that loom, are really just arching over on their way to toppling, and the days are actually very short.
So here’s to a new perspective on what’s bothering you right now, and four ingredients that can give you a simpler point of view.
Pears – Peel, cut if you want to
Red Wine – Simmer with the pear
Parmesan- Shave over poached pear
Balsamic Vinegar – Spoon over poached pear and enjoy
Vent – Tell a friend
Imitate – Act how you want to feel
Evaluate – What is triggering your thought process
Wonder – Ask yourself questions, and wonder about how to make a change if you need to
Here's to pears and a new perspective. Now go out and conquer!
