A Luminous Halo

"Life is not a series of gig lamps symmetrically arranged; life is a luminous halo, a semi-transparent envelope surrounding us from the beginning of consciousness to the end." --Virginia Woolf

What I Had for Lunch Today: Yellow Split Pea Soup with Garlic Bread

I made this soup by sautéeing onions, green and orange peppers, celery and cabbage in olive oil. Then I dumped in about a pound of yellow split peas, a couple of spoons of barley miso, salt, pepper, thyme, and three bay leaves. I cooked it all down and garnished it with organic pumpkin oil and Cholula hot sauce. Ali made the garlic bread.
