In societatile traditionale si/sau primitive, femeile si barbatii au roluri clar determinate, care converg din determinismul biologic. El si ea sunt complementari si activitatile pe care le indeplineste fiecare sunt esentiale pentru desfasurarea vietii, fara sa existe vreun sistem competitiv de masurare a importantei.
In traditional and/or
primitive societies, men and women have clearly stated roles, which are
determined by byological rhytmes. He and she are complementary and their
activities are essential for living, without any emphasys on the
importance of any of them: there is no competitive system to measure if
one is more needed than the other.
Somehow, lately I've faced the need to clarify my role in the world. I think we all have these moments when we want to understand what our purpose on Earth is. I can't say I found the exact answer, but I realized that it is important, for the beginning, to embrace my role as a woman. And, to be honest, I really enjoy being a mother, taking care of my family, feeding them as healthy and tasty as possible and making the world around me a beautiful place, for me and the others.
I love being in the kitchen, just as much as I love painting. Actually, what I enjoy most is experimenting. This is how I cooked this rice with Aegopodium podagraria and served it with a side dish of coltsfoot flowers. The only problem is that I will have to wait until next year to cook it again, while the coltsfoot flowers are done.
And the activity I love most and it's a great way to relax is reading books. I found on one of the blogs I read a reference about Michael Pollan's book, "The Omnivore's dilemma" and I really recommend it. The author is doing a research, by self experimenting, trying to understand how the way we feed has changed, from the hunter-gatherer to today's supermarket shopper.
