About Diane Galambos.  Many of the cooking blogs I visit are authored by young writers.  In their photos, they appear to be spunky, smart.  Their work is admirable, enviable – and even intimidating.  As for me, I can safely say that I am now too old to “die young” – and yet I hope to add a few more adventures to my life journey.  My letter declaring my retirement from the world of post-secondary education quoted Thoreau’s comments on leaving Walden Pond ~ "I left the woods for as good a reason as I went there.  Perhaps it seemed to me that I had several more lives to live, and could not spare any more time for that one."

Life now has more space for wellbeing and wellness – and a blissful preoccupation with food – eating, as well as cooking - old and new recipes that defy categorization.  Lacking the creds to be a bona fide chef, I work as a chef assistant, a recipe tester for several magazines and - apart from catering one dinner party - I cook only for family and friends.  The nest is empty, so one of the greatest challenges of cooking is to find people to help eat everything.

I am a techie and currently channel that bliss into coaching seniors interested in using technology (that could be another blog…). 

Bliss, bliss, bliss… I use that word thoughtfully, with a nod to Joseph Campbell’s advice to “follow your bliss”.  It's never too late to do that. The bliss of technology, the bliss of cooking, eating and sharing love through food – the promise of so much bliss in one blog. Here we go!
