I’m still sleepy. I’m still yearning for a vacation. My husband actually made dinner tonight. Part leftovers, part hot dogs for himself and the kiddo. He also solicited Levi’s help in procurring not one but two bottles of wine for me.

I’m thinking about the pendulum  theory. The idea that we become that which we fight against. I am part of a food club that is working to create a world that doesn’t include an infected, diseased, industrial food complex.

Each space has its directors, its producers, its actors who all play a pivotal role. Each space has its problems and everyone has to pivot. And, the thought has occurred to me – everyone should, yes, I daresay should, take some acting classes in their formative years so they can truly learn the ins and outs of “all the world’s a stage.”
