Happy New Year Jin!

We must have a beginner's mind, free from possessing anything, a mind that knows everything is in flowing change. Nothing exists but momentarily in its present form and color. One thing flows into another and cannot be grasped. Before the rain stops we hear a bird. Even under the heavy snow we see snowdrops.

---Shunryu Suzuki

And I would answer you...that to prepare the future is only to found the present...for the sole true invention is to decipher the present under its incoherent aspects and its contradictory language....You do not have to foresee the future, but to allow it....

---Antoine de Saint-Exupery

What else is there to say? We end in joy.

---Theodore Roethke

And of course to the whole Wulfshead clientele and staff of universally distinguished personage. Special thanks to jin though, for offering her blog-only special box of sweetmeats, which we ordered and she shipped to us. We've finished off nearly every crumb saving 2 scones, an apricot and a chocolate chip (each a meal in itself), for this morning. I'm astonished at the slight quantity of sugar used in the jecstatic concoctions---and almost no pornography at all!

  1. Thanks so much Jazzy!!! Glad you were pleased. I am currently very pleased as well. I am in Florida. It's in the 70's. The foodie in me is currently beyond satisfied. There are pastries & chocolates galore here... the jinApproved type.

    I saved the foodporn for a later post. There may even be a photo of one certain jin consuming a delectable scratchmade cannoli from the most divine Italian market ever.

    Happy New Year to ALL!!!
