beginnings and endings

I walked to work through a ravine this morning. It smelled of damp earth. The air was crisp and cool. It refreshed my heart and my sleepy eyes.

After work I made brownies. I added a banana and made brief glancing references to two recipes which I largely ignored (banana, egg, honey, sugar, butter, flour, chia seeds, flax seeds, baking soda, baking powder, cloves, cocoa, ground almonds - a dash of this, a dash of that). I added a melted chocolate glaze that I also improvised (butter, unsweeted bakers chocolate, almond milk, sugar), and it all came out tasting of heaven. I was halfway through my first brownie when I began to get excited for seconds.
