Struggling to “Get Back on the Horse”
After a long, hard summer, the effects of the hurricane, and now the death of the dearest woman I’ve ever known, I’m facing a dry spell. Not sure what to bake, what to blog about, or even if I care to do either. I know I have to “get back on the horse” and begin to go back to my “normal”.
The truth is, baking has always been a release for me – I bake because it makes me feel good to create something that brings pleasure to others. Sometimes, I bake to get “lost” in the kitchen so I can think, and sometimes I bake just to prove to myself I’ve still “got it”. Blogging about my recipes and experiences gives me a “virtual audience” for sharing. I feel like I’m talking to you, teaching a virtual course on baking right in my kitchen and you are all right there with me, eager to learn and experiment and get your hands sticky.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as I gather myself and learn how to start again.
