One of my resolutions for 2021 was to be more open minded. Since the beginning of the year, I've been trying to expose myself to fresh ideas in all realms of my life.
(Did you know pirate metal is an actual genre of music? Who knew).
Anyway, this week, I decided to expand my food horizons. My restaurant crew and I took a class on lacto-fermentation. It was so inspiring. I'm currently waiting for the results of home-made sauerkraut, mushroom kimchi, and brazil nut cheese.
Let's hope my stomach can handle the bravery of my newly open mind.
I'll tell you one thing for sure, Reader: experimentation and open-mindedness are a great cure for the doldrums. It's been a mentally taxing week for me, and learning new things has a great way of shaking things up and keeping up my energy. If you're looking for a boost this week, try doing something you've never done before. Plant new plants, listen to fresh music, hike a new trail. We're only stuck in a rut if we choose to be.
With that, my energized self is off to clock a little time at the piano. See you next Monday. -Em
