“In mythos and fairy tales, deities and other great spirits test the hearts of humans by showing up in various forms that disguise their divinity. They show up in robes, rags, silver sashes, or with muddy feet. They show up with skin dark as old wood, or in scales made of rose petal, as a frail child, as a lime-yellow old woman, as a man who cannot speak, or as an animal who can. The great powers are testing to see if humans have yet learned to recognize the greatness of soul in all its varying forms.” —Clarissa Pinkola Estés

Oh precious!
Come and visit http://cuisinetulipe.blogspot.com/ and let me know what you think. I really want it to be a blog expressing simplicity, quietness, serenity. But also smiles and well of course taste from the kitchen! I will try so your feedback would be great. Gracias!

Ohhh I like this. I like the visuals it brings to mind. I just finished reading Neil Gaiman's book, American Gods. Have you read it? It's about Old World gods trying to survive in the New World, along with the new gods (of media, television, technology...).
