This was a thinker, a reflection pool into our why some of us do the things we do. I was not expecting that. Honestly, I don’t know what I expected I bought this for the cover and back cover, it mentioned Jackie Chan and Kung Fu movies. I guess I expected a slap stick movie kind of feel to it. I really enjoyed it, I was glued to the pages, I wanted to see her wake up and live. It was very therapeutic There were many moments where I wanted to teak her ear and tell her to smell the coffee more. Dang it was better than Dr Phil or Oprah.
When she is sitting in an abortion clinic with someone she looks around at all the women i the room and wonders.
“How many of them are paying for being lonely?”
Sad moment of clarity, how much we alter our own needs just to not be alone.
“Even if it’s illogical, I go through life as if the people I love were Planning on living forever. As if they had a choice. I skip along my merry way, confident that when I need them, they’ll be there. Most people do this.

Nicci, is a young woman out in the world trying to find her place. She is following the rules set by society all the shoulds, but it’s not quiet fitting. She is the piece that doesn’t have the right bend to fit in just so. So she stumbles, but never falls. Go Nicci.
I made vegetarian sushi for my read while I eat meal. Good old finger food. Avocado topped hand pieces and teriyaki eggplants rolls. Easy to make, easier to eat. I made the vinegar rice with seasoned rice vinegar I just add while fanning to taste, I don’t add sugar like may do it doesn’t suit my taste. I wet my hands for the little rice shapes, bite size and top with a dab of wasabi and a slice of avocado. For the eggplant I use the same rice spread on a nori sheet, top with grilled and charred eggplant slices that are dipped into thickened teriyaki, add some crunch, cucumber, carrot, green onion and roll it up. Tasty, easy and fun to make.
I know the avocado was a bit too soft and came out messy. That is how is goes some times. 😀
