The Spiritual Kitchen

Two of my favorite kitchen items, the silver spoon and the cast iron skillet.  I am drawn to their beauty even more than I adore their function…but there is more.
There is something very zen about a container, emptiness yet fullness.  The emptiness of this pure silver spoon defines its own full, unlimited potential of what it may contain.  Malleable and soft, how appropriate that its surface reflects all, it is like Spirit. The black of the iron skillet, seasoned and hardened contrasts with the silver, light is only perceived as light when set against darkness.
