I appreciate SEL 1 because it gets my energy moving when I feel sluggish. And when I have been thinking too much, or staring at the computer too long, it moves the energy down out of my head, so my mind can relax.

Your body is talking. Are you listening? Are you understanding what it's saying?
If you heard your body sounding an alarm, would you respond? Of course you would. You live in there. Sadly for me, I couldn’t hear the alarms because I didn’t understand the body's language. So, my body talked. And I ignored it. It screamed with symptoms. And I powered through it. Until disease knocked me down.

My body loves sunlight. Maybe it is because I grew up in Southern California. Maybe it is because my normal body temp is lower than “normal.” I don’t know why. I just know that when the Summer turns to Fall and the days are shorter, I miss the light. When the temperatures drop, I miss the warmth.

What if when all is said and done the essential questions of life are:
- How well did you know yourself ?
- How much capacity did you have for loving yourself ?
- And were you true to yourself ?

I first realized that baking comforted me in the Fall of 1989, when I noticed the urge to bake daily after the upset of the Loma Prieta earthquake. While puttering around in familiarity of my warm kitchen, with flour in my hands and cinnamon in the air, all felt right in my world. I was a homemaker in those days, raising two sons with big appetites. So the bounty of my baking was shared and appreciated.
