Walnuts: Nutritious Yet Not So Good For Me

I love peanuts, cashews, pecans, walnuts, and sunflower seeds. However, walnuts are the one and only out of the group in which I cannot eat as I get terrible back pain after consumption of them.

Aside from walnuts having a great taste that highly appeals to me they are also very nutritious. As a child I was able to eat these type of nuts continuously without a problem. I must had developed an allergenic reaction from walnuts over the following years or they just no longer agreed with my body chemistry. I was about sixteen when I first experienced any unfavorable response.

I tried once again when I reached adulthood to see if my body was able to tolerate the constitutes of walnuts. I was not successful at my attempt and disappointed at how I would never possibly be able to take pleasure indulging in what use to be one of my favorite nuts to crack open and devour.

Wardrobe: Dressing In Style

As a child, my mother always kept me clean and very well-dressed. I constantly had the latest clothes and footwear if it had appealed to me.

During my teenage years my mother use to offer to buy me any type of clothing that I wanted just as long as she could afford to purchase the items at a reasonable price, however, I’d usually refuse her generosity when it came to buying apparel as I wasn’t interested in fashion. I was more preoccupied with food and health. So my mom would get me the type of things I liked to eat since I was growing up strictly vegan at that specific time.

My mother sometimes would hassle with me to get extra clothes when we’d go out shopping together, but, I didn’t want them. I never went without, though, I had brand new stuff stored away for years before I eventually wore them. I wasn’t the average teenager and I never gave my mother any problems that is why she was enthusiastic to give me things. She considered me to be a good kid who never wanted anything or ever bugged her about anything.

My mother loved to dress ever since she herself was a teen and she owned a lot of extremely nice apparel. I had good taste and dressed nice too but I wasn’t into clothing the way my mom was. There was plenty of people who were struck with admiration and jealous of her clothes, and fancy style of dress, whether she wore casual or eventful gear. A few of our neighbors would either ask to borrow certain items of my mother’s wardrobe or they’d attempt to put together outfits of their own to duplicate.

It is said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, I guess so.

 

 

Music In The Home: The Rhythm Of Life

There was always music within my household. I’m listening to gorgeous tunes right now at low volume as I write.

My mother made sure I had my own Walkman, Record Player, Organ, Boom Box, and giant set of Headphones as a child growing up.

My mother enjoyed listening to her own complete stereo system that included the tall speakers in which she’d blast.

I have other relatives who adored music and some were even talented within the skills of writing notes and playing musical instruments professionally.

We had loads of albums, cassette tapes, and CDs to engage in as we loved all types of music from soft rock, pop, jazz, rhythm and blues, particular rap, alternative, gospel, and whatever sounded good to the ears.

 

She, Her, My Dog: An Abundant Spirit

Puppies and dogs are special. Many of them have psychic capacity, extra ordinary instinct and intuition, the power to help and to heal, and a very strong connection unto spirit. Their existence is vital.

The moment she was first placed within my arms I felt an instant connection. She was so calm and still, her body didn’t flinch a bit.

She was content in my little arms. We were both young and just about to start the rest of our innocent lives together.

When I first brought her into my home I did everything I was supposed to do. I gave her the dewormer medicine the veterinarian gave to me, then checked her stool which never manifested any parasites, and she never had any type of worms through out her whole entire lifespan.

I gave to her everyday her ear medication as I rubbed the cream inside of her ears so that they would successfully heal from the infection the shelter told me she had, and they did.

My seven to eight week old puppy was in the best of hands. My ten year old mind was ahead, and on top of it all.

I fed her everyday, trained her, played with her, talked to her, comforted her, took her almost everywhere with me, and let her sleep in my bed.

We were the best of friends and one day when I was older she let me know just how close-knit we actually were and she was able to show me our neverending ties to one another. We had a way of communication that spoke louder than words.

I gave her plenty of my love and she was included as a member of the family and treated the most benevolently by everybody in the home as well. Yet she genuinely knew who she was celestially sent to and why she was here.

I was told how good I had taken care of my dog for the seventeen years that I was blessed with her. She was treated as an individual who had her own mind, who had her own feelings, who had her own wants, and who had her own specific needs. And she reacted accordingly, often excelling within the faculties of what one would have expected and I nurtured those attributes and talents she bestowed from within.

Environment was very important to my dog she was happy, very affectionate, loyal, intelligent, highly intuitive, and very observant of her surroundings.

She didn’t like conflict or disharmony and she was provided an atmosphere in where she could productively take in nature, where she could flourish, and where she could enjoy her peace.

She generated and exuded an energy that was magnetic, her aura was full of light. Her state of being was remarkable and her existence was magnificent.

Pizza And Pasta

When I get my paycheck one of the first things I spend my earnings on is food

I love pizza and I love spaghetti. I eat vegan/vegetarian styles of my favorite preparations.

I like lasagna and ziti too.

Throw in some macaroni and cheese and we can have a party, a festive event within my succulent dishes.

As a Taurean, one of our specialties are quality and good food.

Cook me up a meal to satisfy my belly and my belly will yell out “bellissimo!”

So beautiful to the stomach.

My favorite foods happen to abide on the starchy side. Luckily I haven’t ever been at risk for diabetes I do break down those type of foods with healthy oils, fruits, and vegetables.

A lot of the time the process of cooking will reduce the amount of starch intake.

From potatoes to rice to breads, I love the food in which contains the starch, nevertheless.

The Year 1983: Monopoly, Movies, Meals, And Mom

When I was eight years old my mother and I got up one day and headed to an area of queens village where we use to shop at, eat at, go to the movies at, and frequent a favorite discount store of ours.

We use to go out all of the time.

On this particular day we stopped off at the discount store and purchased me the original board game Monopoly.

Then we headed to Burger King where she got her a whopper and me a whopper junior with fries.

Then we headed to the movie theater.

The year was 1983 and Scarface with Al Pacino was showing as the film had just came out. Back then, at that particular time, the movie theaters use to show double features.

Scarface was about three hours long and such a good movie that the whole entire audience stayed to see it a second time because also back then nobody had to pay an additional fee to watch a film over again.

Everyone sat through a boring hour and a half long movie until Scarface replayed on the screen. So all of us within the theater sat for approximately seven an a half to eights hours.

After viewing Scarface for the second time my mother and I took a cab home. We arrived at our house around one am in the morning.

Instead of going to sleep my mother stayed up and taught me how to play the board game Monopoly in which she had bought for me earlier the day before.

I had thought the gesture was so nice and we played until I understood and got the hang of the game.

Such a fond memory of the love, care, and fun my mother shared and displayed to me.

We always had activities to occupy our attention.

Another game my mother was enthusiastic about teaching me to play was the board game Life (The Game Of Life).

Oh, we had delightful pastimes.

 

A Day In Manhattan, New York: My Snapshots

My old stomping ground

I took a trip into the city (Manhattan) today to take care of some business and on the way back home I walked around to enjoy the beautiful weather and to take in the scenery before I caught the train.

At one time in my life I wanted to live in Manhattan I use to travel there frequently to eat at the fancy indoor and outdoor restaurants, to shop, and to go to my job when I worked over that way.

When my family originally came up from Virginia during the 1940’s or 1950’s they resided within Manhattan before some of them spread about to other states and locations.

My mother herself was born and raised in the city.

As I walked through the streets this morning I snapped a few photos with my smartphone of water falls and lounging spots, I love these type of cozy views.

I also happened to come to a corner where I noticed a section of a street barricaded and blocked off while policemen stood around armed with automatic weapons.

I looked up then realized why.

I had came upon Trump Towers on my path throughout Manhattan. I hadn’t been toward that direction in a while.
