just happened upon this while grocery shopping
and based up the name and descriptors
i have absolutely no idea what it actually is.
things that i do know about it:
corn plays some sort of role
it is very yellow
corn can dance or do magic.
things i do not know about it:
is it animal, mineral or vegetable?
“truth is ever to be found in simplicity,
and not in the multiplicity and confusion of things.”
one of the bonuses of being a kindy teacher
is that i always have a snack at the ready
should anything happen along my way home.
the road to enlightenment is long and difficult,
and you should try not to forget snacks and magazines.
dining at its finest
“for strange effects and extraordinary combinations we must go to life itself,
which is always far more daring than any effort of the imagination.”

when out for a night
at a wonderful irish pub
with warm company, warm food, and a warm fireplace
we decided to make the crazy leap
to ask for bread
and were looking forward
to a warm basket overflowing
with fresh, crusty bread
image our surprise
when a single 6-inch slice of soda bread
arrived on tiny plate
to be shared between us
we stared at it for a minute
looked at each other
we were able to eat the whole thing.
“if thou tastest a crust of bread, thou tastest all the stars and all the heavens.”
when in doubt
which to choose
just mix your dessert and your veggies together
easy as pie
what could be better than lemon jello and succotash
all beautifully arranged and sliced on a plate?
“it’s as if we spend our entire lives avoiding Jell-O
but it is always there at the end, waiting.”

at my daughter’s house
getting ready to take the boys to a movie
i opened the freezer and looked for
something healthy and quick to eat before leaving
i chose what appeared to be
some quinoa/whole oats/ancient grains kind of thing
took off the top and heated it up
when i took my first bite i soon realized
there had been a mistake
on my part
it had a taste and texture that really didn’t register
as anything i had ever eaten before
vaguely familiar, but not so much
far from an ancient grain
and it did not taste good
though perhaps was healthy
i looked back again at the top
this time really looking
and saw that it was lightly labeled ‘bee wax’
no doubt from their hives in the backyard
“and what, socrates, is the food of the soul?
surely, I said, knowledge is the food of the soul.”
