Because they were a gift, the tortillas were enough to make me feel connected to the people I live with and reminded that I'm very lucky to have a landlady who delivers fresh, still warm tortillas to my back door. Enough to consider the story of the tortillas all the way back to their maker in a Sonoma tacqueria, all the way back to the corn fields, and back even further into history and tradition. And finally, the dead simple fact that there is, for today at least, enough to eat and enough extra energy to dream up such romantic thoughts about something as simple as a pile of corn tortillas. Enough to help me to laugh at myself and call up some friends to invite them to dinner and enough to then pour myself a beer and head into the kitchen to get cracking on that mole.
* * * * * * * * *It's very important to notice when there's enough. We often have a habit of scarcity, even in times of incredible abundance and wealth. We forget that there's often enough, more than enough, to meet our needs, and to be happy, and to find appreciation, and to give some away. May this be so for you today and every day.
