Today's Mofo prompt is to make/eat something inspired by a book or film. When I first read about the prompts for Mofo. I was excited about this one. I had a whole thing planned, and I was going to research and blah blah blah. I haven't wanted to mention it because I want to keep up the joy of Mofo, but the truth is it's been a struggle because Dylan's health has taken a turn for the worse, and it's been really taking up all of my brain and heart. I'm not going to get into it all, but the past three days have been really bad. I'm having a hard time coping, and I just want to be with Dylan, and think about Dylan all the time. Time is the most valuable resource right now.
I took a picture of two books that I'm reading.
I've been reading The Four Agreements for awhile now. I find that I have a very powerful, emotional response and I need time to process the information. I recently checked Fat Girl Walking out from the library.
I also made one of my new favorites, raw walnut tacos from The 22-Day Revolution. I love these healthy tacos.
Dylan seems to be doing a little better today, and he ate some breakfast and drank some some coconut milk, so maybe today will be a good day. I really wanted to be 100% for Mofo, and I really wanted to make my posts dazzle. But sometimes life gets in the way, and I just don't have the energy to present myself or my life as something it isn't. I haven't really been able to talk to another human about this, so I figured anyone who would read this would totally understand how I feel.
I also took a picture of this chocolate cake I baked. I felt that it applies to the prompt, because I ate far too much of this cake, and reminded myself of every female in every chick flick ever. Totally eating my feelings through chocolate. Sigh.
For anyone who doesn't know who Dylan is, he is the one who loves daiya. He is my best friend, and has been in my life longer than any human has been. I hope that today continues to be a good day, which will open the door to a good week.
Happy Monday!
