threewingedbird This week I taught my students how to make a flour-less banana bread, which recipe we ended up playing with a lot (dates, seeds, chocolate chips, etc). After their hard work of chopping, smashing, processing and mixing up three batches of batter for heart shaped muffins... I waited good and long for the aroma of cinnamon-y goodness to waft into the air and into their nostrils to ask them, "How many of you love your family? Grandparents? Siblings? Mom, Dad? *then after some grumbling* ehhhh okay okay, forget siblings for right now... How about grandparents, mom and dad?" *A mass of hands, shot excitedly towards the ceiling* some of them accompanied by exclamations, such as, "My dad is THE BEST! I love him soooo much! He takes me on hikes!"* Etc.
Okay great. You all love your family - heartwarming. "How many of you love your family enough to give them YOUR piece of banana bread?" (I'd baked enough batches ahead of class for both them and their parents of course, which they did not find out until the end of class. Ha). It was a delightful exercise.
Self control, character, self-denial... It starts young and it starts with a warm, fresh, baked good. It starts with banana bread.

threewingedbird "When despair grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound in fear of what my life and my children's lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things - who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief.
I come into the presence of still water. And I feel above me the day-blind stars,
waiting for their light."

threewingedbird "If contrariness is my
inheritance and destiny, so be it.
If it is my mission to go in at exits and come out at entrances, so be it.

I have planted by the stars in defiance of the experts,
and tilled somewhat by incantation and by singing,
and reaped, as I knew, by luck and Heaven's favor,
in spite of the best advice.
If I have been caught
so often laughing at funerals, that was because I knew the dead were already slipping away,
preparing a comeback, and can I help it?

And if at weddings I have gritted and gnashed my teeth, it was because I knew where the bridegroom had sunk his manhood, and knew it would not
be resurrected by a piece of cake. ‘Dance,’ they told me,
and I stood still, and while they stood quiet in line at the gate of the Kingdom, I danced.
‘Pray,’ they said, and I laughed, covering myself in the earth's brightnesses,
and then stole off gray
into the midst of a revel, and prayed like an orphan.

When they said, ‘I know my Redeemer liveth,’
I told them, ‘He's dead.’ And when they told me
‘God is dead,’ I answered, ‘He goes fishing every day in the Kentucky River."
