Kitchen Meditations

My kitchen is where most of my healing takes place
I do a different kind of creating in silence
One that demands my complete presence and attention
There is no room for anxiety, no time for obsessive thoughts
There’s only the heat of the stove – purifying as fire – and the silkiness of the water as I wash away what no longer serves me
Ritualistic and baptismal
I feel the steadiness of the now and the beating of my patchwork heart
