Today is the start of the Memorial Day weekend. I’m not sure what that means for me other than lots of yard sales and the permission to wear white clothes. Although, a Google search of the holiday informed me that fewer and fewer people are following the white clothes rule and are “wearing white throughout the year”. Well fine – go ahead, if you really want to. Anyhow – it talked a bit about honoring those who gave their lives serving our country but basically called it the beginning of the summer season. It’s interesting how things change. Oh well. The only veteran I know really well is my dad and he’s still alive and so has to wait to be honored until Veterans’ Day, when I put my white clothes away again, by the way. Anyhow – it’s a three day weekend for most of us Americans and that’s always nice. It isn’t one here at Living Light, but that’s okay – we’re having one of our fun potlucks in the Admin. Office on Monday and that’s always nice, too! So I guess, basically, I’m going to try and be mindful of our country’s history and the personal sacrifices that went along with it. And – I’m going to rock my white pants on Monday.
Our students will be starting their Associate Chef and Instructor Training on Monday. This two week course fine tunes their raw culinary skills and also empowers them to teach others to make their own raw food. And that’s really what the light in Living Light is all about: sharing the possibilities of a raw, plant based and cruelty free way of eating with the world. As our Culinary Programs Manager, Martine Lussier, says, “Peace begins in the kitchen”. Hey – what a great focus point for Memorial Day! Have a deliciously peaceful weekend!
