What do I think about when I’m making pie? Or galette in this case.

Under the watchful eye of Sasha,  I roll out the dough for crust.

Rolling in the dough 

I wouldn’t be so far off to think of baking as a kind of meditation.

There’s a world of busy-ness to ponder.  I can take my pick of domestic and global concerns.   Trump, Syria, North Korea, sexual and gender violence,  oy vey.

so I’m going to pace myself.  And bake.
