Tracing Lines

Sydney didn’t make it.  She was due to be discharged this morning but an unexpected cascade of events occurred last night that was unstoppable.

She never made it home but after she was given rest, we got back to Valerie’s house and found Hudson on the pile of comforters and pillows
meant for her as though he was awaiting Sydney’s return.  And Valerie asked me if I believed Sydney’s spirit did make it back.    
Do I believe in that, she asked me.
As a man of both science and faith, I’ve borne witness to many inexplicable, unresolvable things on my travels. Long ago, I wrote a poem whose opening lines were;
“Cast before a silver sheet,
Tracing lines that never meet.”
Reflecting now back on those words I once wrote, I think what I meant was that a life, a love, a mile, a moment in time can be captured photographically but never truly and wholly represented.  
I believe that there is a spiritual connection between loved ones that does and maybe should defy our scientific understanding.  Energy is an expansive thing that is neither created nor destroyed.  And  though the lines never add up and never meet – that connection may change, it is never lost.  

THE JOURNEY CONTINUES

8 Delicious Recipes Starring Pesto

8 Delicious Recipes Using Pesto

When it comes to sauces, pesto is basically my spirit animal. Anything with basil is automatically a star in my book, but when you take it up a notch and turn it into pesto, I’m in heaven. I eat pesto with almost everything, especially this time of year. Pesto also happens to be really good for you. Its ingredients are shown to protect your heart and lower your risk of chronic disease. Even more reason for why it is (in my mind anyway) officially the best condiment ever.

We grow basil during the summer so sometimes we make our own pesto, but more often than that we buy it already made. My favorite comes from a company called Three Bridges, makers of an inspired line of fresh, refrigerated chef-crafted meals, natural filled and cut pastas and sauces. They have both a Basil Pesto Sauce and a Superfood Pesto Sauce (made with basil and kale), and both contain only natural ingredients, which really allows for the flavor to shine through. In addition to the fact that their products are delicious, the company itself is really great too. Their foods and sauces are all made and manufactured proudly in California and North Carolina, where its commitment to good living is reflected in the company’s use of green energy and growing line of certified organic offerings. And today I’m teaming up with them to share eight different pesto recipes and/or pesto serving ideas with you guys. (For my fellow veggies, five of them are vegetarian too. Woot!)

1. Preheat oven to 450º F. Place pizza crust on baking sheet.
2. Spread pesto over pizza crust. Add the remaining ingredients over pesto.
