I had the pleasure of talking with one of my friend’s in the pastry industry last week. Aside from catching up, she wanted to know why bread? It is true, we all learned a lot of techniques and were introduced to a lot of recipes while we were in school. I told her it was a passion of mine – it has been that way since I was young. The desire of being a master of a trade, to be connected to the old world, it all seemed appealing. I told her to go home and watch a video I stumbled upon three years ago. The video focused on a bakery in Brooklyn named SCRACTHbread. If you haven’t been, you should pay a visit.
There are times when I sit down in front of my laptop keyboard and think. More often than not, I wonder and contemplate when was the last time I sat down and wrote. Do not get me wrong, I write a lot; Odessa Magazine and Hide Your Arms keeps me busy. But there is a sweet joy that comes from writing for yourself – about your life or something creative.
I would be lying if I told you I wrote (or baked) every day, but it is a goal I am working towards achieving. At times I think I get caught up with other aspects of my life; working in coffee and finishing my English degree are two major components. The third component would be my beautiful girlfriend – totally understanding, but deserves the world. There are times where I am dedicated to one aspect and struggling with others. Evaluating our priorities is important and it is simple. What I am writing now, what I have been thinking today should have be occurring a long time ago. Luckily, that will change sooner than later… it begins today.
We all have voices to be heard and when look forward to hearing your next stories it is great. However, sometimes our voices grow quiet as we live our lives. These are the times where we must stop and evaluate. Our lives are important and there many that we experience on a day to day basis – we should always have a story to tell. Our voices will be heard.
