SOLID

Vol. 7  | Winter/Spring 2016

nourished magazine - SOLID - Vol. 6 Winter/Spring 2016

As another Winter season pulls in, and, I am reminded of the forgotten beauty from last year. There is certainly something there to rejoice about and something to take away as philosophical application. If only we could take that bird’s eye view and seek the dependability of long cycles, much of our everyday will be resolved without the pains of anxiety!

This issue harkens to that deep desire within us all towards Solidity and rootedness.  Even as we are in the throes of Winter, we forward to the renewal of Spring coming soon. This issue focuses on warmth and satisfaction of wholesome traditions and satiating meals. From the feature story about Turkish Coffee rituals to the pot of spaghetti in lamb ragu on the cover to the richness of biscotti, we explore how we incorporate time into our everyday routine and create a space of welcoming dependence.  


SOLID resonates with the deep desires of each of us as we go through our everyday to step back, pause, breathe in and re-look at our lives from a higher and larger perspective. It brings to life the joy of having a simmering stew stovetop while the snow flakes swirl and dance outside the window.

This issue explores the different ways we look to lengthen time in our lives. From communal rituals to slow cooked meals, we have an intrinsic need to indulge in the moment that despite the hurriedness of our lives is a very real need. In this issue, I want to take you on a journey where you find ways to incorporate time within the realities of your life's constraints...

GLIDE

Vol. 6 | Summer 2015

 
 

Many a time, catching a few moments of introspection, whether at the beach or the park, I find myself looking up at the clear blue sky that occasionally was streaked by the grace of a winged creature, gliding effortlessly. In those moments, were truly captured, the essence of this Season and the inspiration for this issue.

Caught between summer and autumn, this issue lauds our abilities to fit so much into the as yet long days; gliding from one activity to the other, yet able to be present in each. The pursuit of happiness that comes upon us suddenly and with passion. Whether it be the roulette of parties and pleasure seeking activities or the grounding of solitude seekers, we all find our way to commit with vigor to what makes us the best, brightest stars in our lives. Each of us seeking the most and at most in everything we do.  Yet, we find the time to recommune, through barbeques, family dinners and holidays!
