Acts Of Optimism

posted: Wednesday, 16 September 2020

How to Academy always organise fascinating events and today my evening starts with me listening to Julia Cameron (author of 'The Artist's Way') and Elizabeth Gilbert (author of 'Eat, Pray, Love') whilst pickling tiny green tomatoes and realising both are acts of optimism which feels really good.

I buzzed around the kitchen looking forward to a future when I can apply some of what I've learned this evening, and eat the food I'm preserving.

But then I remembered that the last time I preserved anything and hoped, with optimism for better things, was at the start of March and look where that got us!
