Corn Bread

By Cherrie Williams
Friday December 21, 2007

And there is nothing wrong with that. Nothing wrong at all. But only in the discovery of an autonomous and benevolent republic of an artful creation. Through your own rigorous stirring and folding in a bowl of uncertainty, intellectual, emotional, spiritual and even its physical effort. It takes a lot of individual will to smooth out the roughness, “kneadless” pieces of grains. Pounded to perfection, and though it were whole kernels (thought processes), to rise up! Make yourself sit on your butt day in and day out to make this substance to be enjoyed. 

Unfolding in a world bowl of uncertainty: the finished product. No matter how rough the road was to get there. 

Wandering imagination; up to a perfect loaf.
