35. The Poem


Future food: Successful food service often comes in rather large portions and in its wake…a degree of ill health. Have you been looking for any means to guide you in ordering…less…of anything? What has worked?

Delta effect: Too many opportunities taking too much of the family’s time together? When does one say “no” to a cash flow success opportunity?

Poetry: Words, when distilled and measured with emotion can turn the direction of ones life…has a poem helped you to regain your life, or your love, or both?

    I am using an 8″ plate, and when I can dividing it 50% veggies, 25% protein, and 25% or less carbs. American dinner plates are way too large and susceptible to overfilling. I also start each meal with a large green salad when I can.
    A poem, no, but perhaps the lyrics to a song, or a phrase or two from my husband or son, can recalibrate my life and focus to the things that are important. We too, over the years, have been at crossroads in our marriage, and I will forever be grateful that we chose to weather it out together. I can’t imagine life without him and thank the Lord for him daily.
    Love the new website!

    Future food: There was a time when I enjoyed eating out at certain restaurants. Now, the portions are so large and mostly laden with fat. I do enjoy the companionship of friends so when I have an opportunity to eat out, I try to make the best choices. Often ordering a few side dishes that “seem” to be more healthy has been my best option.

    Delta effect: In my life, it is easy as I never have had a lot of cash coming my way. However, had I a family I’d hope I’d say “no” really fast if time with them was being compromised for any reason. It is an ideal worth working toward – them above opportunities taking me away from them.

    Poetry: Oh, words! They are always turning and enriching me. I find a “poem” (emotional connection) expressed in the lyrics of a song can hit me most deeply, probably because of the combination of two of my favorite things: words and music and how they can “dance together”.
