For me the starting point was Mickey Mouse in Fantasia, so wanting to move it up a notch. In the Sorcerer’s Apprentice he wants to “be the magician” and it goes a little awry. Sound familiar?
The sparkles represent the energy around us all, the magic of the Universe. Our job is to connect with that energy so we can fulfill our part, the stirring.
The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines stir as ” to mix (something) by making circular movements in it with a spoon or similar object “.
Within the context of this Kitchen Wand though, I would suggest some additional pieces of the puzzle are:
1. to rouse to activity : to begin to move
2. to call forth : evoke
3. to bring into notice
Any Kitchen Witch worth her/his salt and spices, also knows that time is an integral part of creating magic. Time spent learning and practicing a Craft, time spent gathering ingredients and time spent in a kitchen creating health filled memories for family and friends.
A recent report ( Real Bread Campaign ) has suggested that baking can also help with mental health issues. If you are stressed by all the running around that happens in life there is a potential remedy.
Whether you are feeling like the apprentice or the magician, I invite you to put aside some time, allow your energies to stir and share a little of your own creative culinary magic with someone else.
