AM Banana Bread!

Life is challenging right now, I guess becuase I can only (or choose to)see my path one day at a time! I need to make money and support myself, but at this point and time it's difficult! I know like everything, this too shall pass! I know this is a lesson for us all to slow down and not get so wrapped up in our obsession of material things but rather to enjoy each other. I have a friend here in Puerto Vallarta, the family is not rich, in good time they barely make it with 3 teenage kids. I was talking to her yesterday and she said, well we don't have a lot but we have each other and we have been enjoying spending time together (the kids are going on 2 weeks out of school, and her husband has been cut to part time in the hotels becuase of the swine flu scare, thanks US media, we really fucking appreciate your fucking stupidity)I asked how they were financially, she said well, we have coffee, water, rice and beans so we are doing good, we can eat everyday! That pretty much put things in to perspective for me!

Very relaxing and a super chill end to a fairly heavy day. I have dubbed myself "The Ice Pack" it seems that most of my friends here have had melt downs in the last few weeks, and I seem to get the phone call in the middle of it! I am sure my time will come and I will have a lot of people to call!

  1. Amen to you Chan! You are always so positive, and often times that's the only thing you can be. Keep your head up and your mind busy! :) (It's very distracting) Also, I want your banana bread recipe! You have inspired me to make some!!
