The beginning

A few months ago I found myself the victim of a drive-by-breakup. It seemed at the time to be wrong and out of the blue. But these things happen for a reason, right? At least, everyone likes to tell you that things happen for a reason when they don’t know what else to say. Regardless, I do think that things happen for a reason. The tricky part is sitting still long enough to figure out what the cosmos is trying to tell you.

Anyway, there I was single, sad and alone. So I did what any girl would do: I cried. Then I called up my friends. And cried some more. Then when the crying stopped I realized I was hungry… and naturally, I reached for brownies. Moist, chewy brownies with cream cheese frosting. Mmm… How can you not feel better after filling yourself with all of that chocolatey goodness?

After a lot of thought and a lot of tears and a lot of brownies, I realized that I was ok. Actually, I was better than ok. I was free to make my own decisions. To go away for the weekend to where I want to go when I want to go and not have to negotiate it with anyone. To eat brownies for dinner anytime I felt like it. It’s a freedom I had not been longing for but I appreciate it anyway. There is time for negotiations later. For now, I am happy to follow my own whims.

So that is what this is about. “Brownies for dinner” is about me following my whims. Where am I going and where will I end up? I am not entirely sure but (pardon the cliché) I think it is the journey more than the destination that is interesting.
