Food for our Minds and Spirits: Peeling Mushrooms

Not everyone has time to keep up with TV and movies, and we are living in a world that is saturated in them. There’s so much to keep up with! But we are living in a time when really amazing, remarkable things are showing up––not the standard, distracting stuff, but really deep, human and meaningful reflections on life.

It has been a little crazy lately, and I’ve been thinking about how we prioritize and structure time. Spring is a good time to think about this. And it reminded me of a scene from the show The Bear that has stuck with me. It’s about how sometimes taking the time to take time means everything. Peeling mushrooms is kind of pointless, but it is also a way of being very deliberate with how we spend our time, and how we communicate to others when we spend our time on one another.

Sometimes it is hard to tap into our spiritual selves or find time to nurture our creativity and intellectual curiosity. Here is a section that reflects on some nourishing materials from around the web and related media channels in order to get us thinking, get us feeling, and get us reflecting on the lives we are living in this big world. **Some Adult/Mature Themes May Appear in Links and Other Attached Material**
