if music be the food of love...

December 26 Prompt: Soul food. What did you eat this year that you will never forget? What went into your mouth & touched your soul?

oh dear god... PURE torture!!! I was going to start being very clever when I glanced at this first thing this morning... I was wafting around .."if music be the food of love..." ... "knowledge is the food of the soul" ... "Music is the movement of sound to reach the soul for the education of its virtue" ... "Hollywood is a place where they'll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss and fifty cents for your soul" ..... blah blah blah... however.. then I read it through and realised they actually MEANT food, real food... What has gone into my mouth to touch my soul??? nothing, I repeat, NOTHING has gone into my mouth and touched my soul! It's landed quite safely on my thighs and hips! Completely bypassed my soul and headed straight to my belly and arms... I'm only just learning to enjoy and savour food again... to eat slowly and TASTE it... not hoover it down to drown out my feelings... I"m only just relearning to respect my body... in 2011 I'm taking my time, slowing down... I'm going to enjoy my food and never pick the same thing from a menu twice when we're going out to a restaurant... variety ... spice of life... to quote Mr. C.S. Lewis "You don't have a soul. You are a Soul. You have a body."
