Italian, Asian, or Southern fried, It’s National Noodle Day and you should celebrate your noodle style.  Usually made with flour, eggs, and water, noodles have been around for centuries! Now noodles are everywhere for every price from Top Ramen (that let’s you gourmet on a budget) to homemade delicacies (that show your chef-poshness).   And, if you’re the kind of chef that should always order out, remember there’s noodle art.

Tis Art

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.  Luckily when it comes to art, Webster’s Dictionary gives us constraints.   It’s International Art Appreciation Day and before we go admiring any old thing off the street, let’s define the terms.  According to Webster’s, art, for our purpose, is the conscious use of skill and creative imagination especially in the production of aesthetic objects the art of painting landscapesalso :  works so produced a gallery for modern art and decorative or illustrative elements in printed matter.”

Gather today and celebrate by discussing culture and the oneness art can bring.  Peace, love and moonbeams can be today’s motto.  I feel the showers of acceptance shimmering over my body right now.   Don’t get offended or overly caught up.  There are many people who want peace and harmony in the world, but everybody’s peace and harmony isn’t what you want.  Find your center, rub your belly, pat your head and…
