I love to go in early spring and hunt Morel mushrooms. I love the way they can spring up in a matter of seconds. One minute you can be walking in one place and see nothing, then you turn around and bam.... there is a Morel. Plus they taste wonderful sauteed up with butter.... so yummy.
Many of my friends think I am a bit mad for actually eating a wild mushroom. In fact I don't think I could ever get Vincent to try one... He got crazy eariler this summer when I picked a mushroom I had found while mowing that looked much like a male endowment. Telling me to go immediately in the house and wash my hands...I am a bit of a fungus nut and this year has been an abundance of shapes, sizes and types... Yet I do not wish to talk about mushrooms this morning.
I wrote an entry yesterday in regards to a trip to my local bookstore. I talked about my delight in finding a magazine with an article on my groupie crush as well as a wonderful vanilla latte. I also spoke of a book I had found and my eagerness to read it. Quickly I received various comments in regards to the credibility of the author and the acruacy of her work. I will admit that I was not well versed on any of her previous work so I truly appreciated the information given. Many of you, (one in partciular - Bella) were very helpful in explaining your views and perspectives on the situation, giving me links to go to so that I could read and come to my own conclusion in regards to the acusations that had been made.
This is exactly what a friend is.... Someone that will tell you if they see you doing something they feel may harm or mislead you. They speak honesty regardless of the popularity of it. They speak their heart and say what concerns them in a manner that warns you of possible mishap. To all of you I want to say thank you for your honesty.
Yesterday I read an entry in regards to comments on blogs and whether or not they should be in opposition to the entry. Where as I do not think that malicious comments that are only meant to be attacking someone in a manner to make the writer look bad so that the commenter can feel like they are superior is wrong; I do think that an honest opinion is exactly what the comment box is for. So I say keep on telling me what you feel I need to hear as well as your honest to goodness opinions... I love them and would not have it any other way.... By the way I still am smiling.... and still I think it is always good... :-)
PS: WARNING: The above mushroom IS NOT a Morel.... Just wanted to make that clear so no one would go picking a bunch of wild mushroom and start eating them..
