open invitation no. 67: soup

Only the pure in heart can make good soup.

[Ludwig van Beethoven]

Soup is good for my soul. I like that it simmers. I like that it gets better with time. I like that it doesn’t take a recipe. And I like the vegetables. Mostly, though, I like soup on an autumn evening when the world is whispering slow down…slow down.

This week the invitation is to write about soup…or about slowing down.

Of course, if there’s something else tugging at you—write that instead!

*Remember, you don’t have to accept this invitation…but I do hope you will accept the invitation to write. Sharing our stories is magical.
