Kitchen musings

On Monday, I was chopping the spinach the workers in the field gave us on Sunday. They gave us a big bunch and wouldn't take money for it, so we divided up the bunch between ourselves.

As I chop, I muse on the fact that all this respectable-looking amount will boil down to just a few teaspoonfuls. So, too, it is with ambitions and desires....the overwhelming, dominating aims and longings of today will melt down into tiny, insignificant things, in the entirety of life. And like the spinach, other wants and needs and must-haves will take their place!
