In a couple of months I will visit San Francisco for the very first time and I can promise you, that I will make sure to wear some flowers in my hair.
This sunday I am hosting the third Afternoon Pancake event. The theme is American Pancakes, and I will serve them with fresh berries and maple syrup. If I am lucky maybe some of my guest will celebrate the beginning of summer, and wear flowers in their hair.
Flowers are such delicate and fragrant beings, and have been the inspiration for many artists, poets and mystics.
“Buddha is said to have given a “silent sermon” once during which he held up a flower and gazed at it. After a while, one of those present, a monk called Mahakasyapa, began to smile. He is said to have been the only one who had understood the sermon. According to legend, that smile (that is to say, realization) was handed down by twenty-eight successive masters and much later became the origin of Zen.”
