And when hate overcame the woman, in a desperate moment of compulsion, her wits were verily shattered with anxiety and sheer contempt, for no one is free, without love.
A pale and soft hand, reached out in gratitude to the poor abandoned soul, in seconds a transformation lifted her to serene acceptance and redemption. At one with this ghostly form, she fell into a slumber… a touch, a caress, and a warm embrace…
She woke gently to find a cup of sweet tea and a warm blueberry muffin, both in golden bowls.
No more lost than found, no more lonely than free, no more pleasing or seething, no more hungry and wanting, simply, so simply, being…
We had these beauties for breakfast, with a bowl of fresh ruby strawberries! Needless to say, it was a very happy start to the day. The muffin mix needs a night to rest in the fridge, so they really are easy peasy to bake first thing. Apart from the omission of a handful of blueberries to appease my sons impatience, all was smooth and hassle free, just the way I like it. Pre-heat oven, set a timer and Hey presto! I sometimes serve these warm from the oven with a generous dollop of Greek yogurt. They’ll keep in an air-tight container for up to three days, so are a great addition to picnics also.
