As I close in on the final twelve days of this project (but who's counting), I feel like I'm supposed to amp it up for some final kick-ass adventures. Y'know, really knock it out of the park. But the truth is I'm staggering to the finish line, still feeling that nagging anxiety of whether I'll come up with enough interesting ideas.
Then I remind myself that one of the points of this year was to not only invigorate my life with extraordinary moments, but also to invest in the ordinary. To pay closer attention. To fall in love with my life.
Like today's New Thing wherein I learned the simple act of how to flip onions in a pan. I must confess that flipping anything in a pan (like omelettes or crepes) had somehow passed from Something I Don't Know How to Do to Something I Was Sure I Couldn't Do. Yet, as with learning to throw a frisbee, it's all a matter of learning the proper technique. In this case, from my culinarily gifted friend BoBo.
Look how hard I'm concentrating. You'd think I was splitting atoms. But see how the onions are flying up out of the pan?
