Awake at this early hour again! Banana muffins with cream cheese frosting with mini chocolate chips is what is cooking. I had too many
bananas and didn't want to wait an hour for banana bread hense the muffin recipe which came out extraordinarily good. Always surprised
when a new recipe is one I want to keep.
Yes, that is the book in reference and actually I think I read two or three versions of the same book. It was enlightening, his vision and division of types and needs in that book and where I thought I fit. In the end, I remember feeling that I fit in two places.
Your reference to smiles made me smile! Recently, I made it a point to smile at strangers that I thought needed that little attention. What I found was that most people would smile back, some would nod their head but I could see the smile started in their eyes and moved to their lips because it was unexpected. And that made me happy. I am seeing that you connected smile, voice tone and body language and I find that interesting. I do observe my little sister sometimes and she likes to flirt. She uses all that visual to get a response. I have never really been a good flirt as I believe she inherited all the flirt genes in the family. I was definitely behind the door as my mother would like to say when she referred to someone's looks or manners. I am not so sure about your analogy about psychological growth and social growth so much as personal growth. I think when I relax and let life unfold without trying to control it is when I feel the best as you refer to the subconscious mind. All this thinking is giving me a headache! Not really but you do make me analyze myself and people around me. As a matter of fact, something you said to me in a previous letter came forefront in my mind today. It is amazing how that works sometimes, how your brain catalogs info and processes it.
I am sorry to hear that your cupboard is bare, Father Hubbard. I have a hundred cookbooks and alot of staple ingredients. That is the secret to being a good cook....to have ingredients on hand. Whatcha feel like?
Banana muffins with cream cheese frosting with mini chocolate chips sounds pretty tasty.
I think that when I write "psychological growth" or "social growth" I probably am thinking about the same thing you do when you write "personal growth". We're both talking about something internal and not physical strength, intellectual growth of financial increase.
In reply to your words, "I think when I relax and let life unfold without trying to control it is when I feel the best as you refer to the subconscious mind", I think that you can "let go" best when you have reached a certain level of psychological growth and social growth because your inner resources make you less concerned about external things including how you appear to external people.
Sorry if some of the things I write make your head hurt. Glad that some of the things I write catch your interest.
What do I feel like? Maybe an omelet.
