Kale & Vegetable Ribbon Salad

Kale & Vegetable Ribbon Salad - The Sunday Table www.thesundaytable.com (2 of 4)

To say I have writers block would be an understatement because there simply are no words. The are no words to express fully how I feel about this Spring and all of the elements it holds. I haven’t the time to unmask it all, to fully digest it. Instead I tread on filling every moment of every day with something to keep me occupied. Change is coming and it’s bound to hit me like a ton of bricks.

I can’t fathom next week, when life as I’ve come to know it has turned upside down. I can’t bring myself to fully grasp the reality of what’s to come. I’m lost in all of the moving pieces. My mind’s gone blank, my ears numb to words I can’t be bothered to hear. My heart’s gone still.

“Change is a fundamental element of consciousness. It is what commands our attention, awakens it, makes us question…Without change, our minds become dull. Without change, there is no growth, no movement, and no life. Consciousness thrives on change.” — Anodea Judith, Ph.D.

Lemon Curd

Dairy Free Lemon Curd - The Sunday Table www.thesundaytable.com (6 of 6)

We set our minds to getting away to just be. Watched the sunset over the ocean from the tallest peak. Treated ourselves to a fancy dinner and talked about the parts of life that simultaneously knock you down and build your character. We drove the familiar mountain roads that led us to a place where time slows down. Devoured our pack lunches as we stretched our legs in the sun. We gathered fresh lemons and eggs. The ocean called our names, so we jumped in. Felt its waves wash over us,  each one refreshing our spirits anew. Together we chopped and stirred and seasoned and made something from scratch in the borrowed kitchen. We let ourselves feel the push and pull of friendly competition over a game of cards. Arose to meet friends for a days long hike over the mountain and back to the beach. Struggled to keep our eyes open as we drove back to the city we call home. Somehow we froze time, having turned two days into weeks. Recounted the moments in our minds to savor them for all the days we spend apart.
