My pixie friend always succeeds in making me think…I love her posts always a little controversial but well written and thought provoking and I like posts which when they aren’t recipes stretch the grey matter. I hope you enjoy the read 🙂

Cool story, bro, but you’re going to have to take your candy coated zen master bullshit elsewhere because I’m telling you my hands hurt. I’m telling you that these hands used to wedge clay and spend hours at the pottery wheel without so much as a cramp or an ache. Now, there are days that I can’t open a pickle jar.
