Is it just me? Is this not true or what? Even though I know it will do it I jump every time!
This is one of my favorite recipes from one of the delightful Brazilian restaurants near me. AND its gluten free.

Diva Waxing Poetic Again. Had this with my morning cupper….
memories longing forgiveness
when nothing could be done
to undo, relive past
why time and tide
ebbs, flows fast
leaving no moment
to reflect, adjust, adapt
errors of judgment,
random acts of subterfuge,
insensitive words deluge,
destroy what is near, dear
to the heart and soul
nothing remains untouched, whole
only too much time to reflect
