I am intense and fiery.
I make no excuses and I bare no shame.
I am free, I am enigmatic. I am.
• • •
I am as old as the mountains and as young as a new teardrop.
I can taste starlight and moonbeams and dance with the wind.
I am omnipotent, I am wild. I am.
• • •
I am coloured like the rainbow.
I glitter and shine like the summer sun.
I am the vibration of the earth and the song in your soul.
I am ethereal, I am absolute. I am.
• • •
Come to me in your darkest agony.
Come to me in your brightest light.
For I am yours, your cloud and anchor!
I am truth. I am creation. I am love.
“We’re so lucky we’re still alive to see this beautiful world. Look at the sky. It’s not dark and black and without character. The black is in fact deep blue. And over there! Lighter blue. And blowing through the blueness and the blackness, the winds swirling through the air. And there shining, burning, bursting through, the stars! Can you see how they roar their light? Everywhere we look, the complex magic of nature blazes before our eyes.”
~ Vincent to the Doctor
Recently, I became madly obsessed (and with good reason) with BBC’s Dr. Who. It’s a show that follows the travels and adventures of one eccentric, clever and amazing Doctor and his companions and boasts a wide array of villains and no-do-gooders that they encounter (and defeat!). The story of the show in itself is intriguing, but it’s the brilliantly executed, sometimes quirky and wildly heart-felt dialogue that really pulls me in (OK…and the fantastic problem-solving!! Nerd alert! haha). Whether you watch the show or have never heard of it before, these quotes are definitely applicable in real life and you just might start to see your world a little bit differently (and much more magically)!!
“The universe is big. It’s vast and complicated and ridiculous. And sometimes, very rarely, impossible things just happen and we call them miracles.”
“The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don’t always soften the bad things, but vice versa, the bad things don’t always spoil the good things and make them unimportant.”
“Some people live more in 20 years than others do in 80. It’s not the time that matters, it’s the person.”
“In 900 years of time and space, I’ve never met anyone who wasn’t important”
“There’s a lot of things you need to get across this universe. Warp drive… wormhole refractors… You know the thing you need most of all? You need a hand to hold.”
“I am and always will be the optimist. The hoper of far-flung hopes and the dreamer of improbable dreams.”
“This is one corner… of one country, in one continent, on one planet that’s a corner of a galaxy that’s a corner of a universe that is forever growing and shrinking and creating and destroying and never remaining the same for a single millisecond. And there is so much, so much to see.”
“We’re all stories, in the end. Just make it a good one, eh?”
I recently stumbled upon this fantastic and super easy recipes for grilled veggie packs. They are fast becoming a staple in this house and a great option when you are low on ideas, time, money or supplies. With only 20min cook time and 10 minutes top prep time (tops!), delicious dinner will be on the table before you know it!
Here’s one of my favorites so far, though you can pretty much combine anything you have on hand:
Chop, dices, slice your veggies however you most prefer. Put them in a bowl with the drained beans of your choice and mix in the following:
Pre-heat your oven to 450•. While the oven is pre-heating, tear off aluminum foil sheets in squares, big enough to be able to loosely fold the edges together. Take your veggie/bean mixture and place a good portion in the middle of the aluminum foil and gently fold/roll the ends over each other to form a packet. Place them in the oven for 20 minutes and VIOLA! Yummy, easy-peasy, done!
I love making these with tater tots (my favourite side dish – haha!). You can even do baked potato, salad, grilled cheese – the possibilities are endless!!
