Powerful Points Of Focus

I think most would agree that the world has become highly fractured where many people pledge allegiance to those who share their world-view and are swift to be combative with or cancel all others.

On the surface, when someone comes at us with unkind energy, it can be natural to wonder why that person is so rude or self-centered.

Snapshot of Korean miso stew made with enoki mushrooms and green pea shoots on August 3, 2016. Once you are comfortable with miso, you should feel free to include any vegetables you like.

Every once in a while, I feel the need for some authentic Soon Doo Boo JiGae, a hearty, miso-based stew that's chock full of fresh vegetables and silky soft tofu. If you grew up in a Korean home or have had the pleasure of trying Soon Doo Boo Jigae at a Korean restaurant, you probably know exactly what I'm talking about - it's a need that cannot be defined.
