Creation – the act or process of bringing something into existence.
My word of the year is creation. At first, I took it too literally, focusing on me creating things instead of looking at it in a broader way, of considering bringing things into existence. After all, every we time we plant a seed or a bulb, we are hoping the create a beautiful flower or edible plant.
In fact, it is time for me to create some pickled nasturtium seeds to be enjoyed in a few weeks time as you can see below. This month, I created an Easter feast (link) which we enjoyed with friends, enjoyed a beautiful bouquet created by our neighbourhood florist and a wonderful baked pasta with pork and fennel sausage dish from Sophie Hansen’s In Good Company.
In terms of writing, I created a new journal for writing down blogging and other ideas, partly inspired by this book on creating food writing (I’ll review it later once I finish it). I continued to work on ideas for a second blog, but more of that in the months to come (hopefully!).
Next month is May, time for some autumnal creations….what will they be
