One incident that still brings a smile to my face is an example of pure innocence. There is a line in the play were Rev. Canon Chasuble, says "I am a celibate, madam'. One evening I turned to the teacher who was the play's director and asked "What does celibate mean?". He was a very sweet, old fashioned, middle aged man, who smoked too much. The look on his face when I asked this was one of sheer terror. He never did give me the answer, and it was only much later when I found out the meaning that I blushed too.
Now, you may ask "What is the Importance of being Ernest?". Well it is actually the reason for life... How I wish to approach this forum... and especially my life... Being Ernest (actually earnest).
I looked up the word EARNEST and these are a few of the definitions I found :
|1.||serious in intention, purpose, or effort; sincerely zealous: an earnest worker.|
|2.||showing depth and sincerity of feeling: earnest words; an earnest entreaty.|
|3.||seriously important; demanding or receiving serious attention.|
This blog is my way of showing my intentions, not only about the food I make but also the important things in my life. While making good food is a great way to show this, there are so many more things that are important to me, things that are deep and sincere and seriously important.
I am not a person who has a hectic social life. Happiness to me is spending time with my family and the few close friends I have made and kept over many years. Keeping in contact with these people is what I treasure most and what I most earnestly strive to work at.
My wish is that as you read, you will see the things I find important, not only how to make the best carrot cake, but the best way to share it.
I dedicate this post to those who know the treasure they have in finding true love and being able to give it freely.
Here is a family picture, which shows just what happiness is all about, the photo taken when no one is ready for the flash.....
