A wise woman once said "Your body hears everything your mind says." That woman was Naomi Judd. Okay, I don't know how wise she is, but I sure connected with that quote. And I figure someone who has faced serious health issues and spent much of her life touring must know something about how stress impacts your body!
Are you thinking about the marijuana business and are tempted by the prospect of making lots of money?
It may seem enticing, but…., where are you going to safe keep those greenbacks? --In a bank? Forget it. And, what are you going to do about taxes? The federal government regards the marijuana trade as illegal, but God forbid, you fail to remit those taxes!
Those are just a few things you will have to deal with.
Even if you don't actually like to cook, there is a certain pleasure to be had from just perusing cookbooks. Some have gorgeous photography. Some authors write about food in a way that can get you craving flavors you've never tasted before. Cookbooks allow you to fantasize about dishes that you might make (if you could find all of those rare ingredients and if you actually had all the strange kitchen gadgets required!). They allow you to travel the world through the cuisine of various countries. Some get so specific that they center around a single ingredient.
Personal stories are fascinating. They enliven history, putting events into a context we can understand. They bridge the gaps between our own experiences and those of others, as we see common human concerns arise in circumstances vastly different from our own. More than anything, personal histories help us to empathize with people whose lives we may have never imagined.
