Good fortune, good lunch and good dinner

- My fortune from a cookie that came with dinner over the weekend.  Still mulling this one, "For light, go directly to the source of the light, not any reflections."  I like that!  But have no idea what it really means.  :)

Two meals in one day at wonderfully named restaurants:

- Mushroom risotto from Cafe Sunflower for lunch with a client - another diner blogged about it and called the risotto "to die for" and it really is that good.  

- Laughing with friend Leisa over dinner at Sun in my Belly and during the crazy rainy commute while getting there.

I would gravitate to any direct sunlight!
All we have is raining slush today tho-
Love your cat mug!
Lucky you eating good food out with good company.

Yup, want some Sunshine here too!

I like that quote, too, but I'm not sure what it means either--exactly.
Two Good meals in one day at two different restaurants! Nothing Better!!!
That's a very pretty cup, too!

Snaggle -

I am definitely lucky! We've had drippy rain the last couple of days - I am wanting some sunshine, too. This must be your day off.

Naomi -

I know - it's very mystical, isn't it?

That is a hand painted mug that I have always loved - I've had it for several years. The instructions said to not put it in the dishwasher, but it's been in there a zillion times and still looks good. :) (The first time was by accident.)

The quote seems to mean that we should go directly to the source of the light and not the reflections caused by it. Maybe a bit like chinese whispers? It's better to get the message from the person who originally said it not the message that has been passed through other people and becomes distorted?

Lee said...

"When you find peace within yourself, you become the kind of person who can live at peace with others." Is one explanation. I think it means to keep on the positive path...not the negative.

You were pretty positive about all that good food, Lynn! :)

I adore the name Sun in My Belly. That one makes me definitely want to visit:~)

Okay, I admit I don't get your fortune either. I think you have go someplace very quiet and meditate on that one.

I love risotto. I don't about mushroom risotto, but I'd certainly be willing to try it:~)

May you be getting glimpses of sun. We've had a few peeks here and there today, but it now cloudy AGAIN. At least, it's warm:~)

Happy day to you, Lynn.

Mushroom risotto is one of my favorites! They make it so good at the restaurant down the street, I'll have to get back there soon. Btw, I loved the quote you shared so much I plan to share it on FB. Thanks. :)

I love the kitty mug!

Mama Zen said...

That is a really cool fortune!

Joanne said...

The fortune does sound lovely...very philosophical.

Yay for good food!

Granny Annie said...

I'll be looking for a kitty mug like that....only with a dog:)

LL Cool Joe explained the fortune well I think. Believe what you see, not what someone tells you.

I would take sun my belly, on my head, on my butt...just give me some SUN and no more snow!!!
