damson! it's one of those days
A friend planted a damson plum tree on some local wild land and it's fruiting furiously. She was kind enough to give me some and it was taste symphony. Just beautiful.
These old varieties of fruit just have such intense and complex flavours going on. And they look like a large blueberry,a teeny size for a plum!
I have some damson plum sauce simmering. I am making the recipe up as I go along (as I often do) and had a near miss when I got chatting and saved it from burning. Things are repeatedly stressful with one part of my worklife and I am feeling it. I am asking myself those deep questions. What is my part in this? What can I shift? How can I let go? Is it worth it? And seeking honest counsel from wise friends. Thank goodness for honest counsel from wise friends. And tarot. Tarot cards are that uninvested impartial perspective too. When I am selecting cards and one keeps leaping out of the pack while I am shuffling, again and again. The one I don't want to see. Yup. Changes afoot. Bother! Just when I was happy with where things were at. Life is funny like that. Has life thrown any curveballs your way lately?
