For the last week I've not been cooking. What's been going on is this. I had a bit of a health scare which I didn't want to get into. It started about a month and a half ago, when I had some tests which had some strange results. Since then my doctors have been following up, I had a bunch more tests, (I was at UCSF most of yesterday), visited the surgeon they wanted me to see, and as it turns out all reports in, I'm fine.
It was a massive relief. As any cancer survivor can tell you, any time something merits a further "look see" it can be nerve wracking. I didn't want to discuss it with friends because I didn't want to answer questions I didn't have any answers for, and I didn't want to have to explain anything unless I had to. I certainly didn't feel much like cooking. I was doing my regular writing work but didn't feel relaxed enough to experiment in the kitchen. But now, I'm well and grateful, and ready to get back behind the stove again. So to all, no matter what you're celebrating right now, Passover, Holi, or Easter, have a lovely weekend.
