Praise Cookies

"Without attention, the human sense of wonder and the holy will stir occasionally, but to become a steady flame it must be tended."--Huston Smith, The World's Religions. Wouldn't it be wonderful if there were a god of cookies? Surely if there were, she would be a goddess! Or more probable, a child. A cookie is really so much better than the stodgy scone, the conservative muffin, less-than-portable cake- Because of its shape, you can hold it with one hand and address important business with the other, if you want to. My favorite cookie is no secret: Uncle Eddies Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip. When you find one you really love, lift it skyward and praise the Holy Cookie Creator Worthy of Otherworldy Status (and capitalization).

In certain circles, my nickname is "cookie monster sunshine"...

Thank you for photographing Miles with a cookie...we all have a cookie dance, a cookie worship. Satchel bobs his head up and down when he eats a cookie. I've asked all of my friends over the years to show me how they ate a cookie when they were kids.

My cookie worship: I tilt my head way back while holding the cookie high in the air to proclaim ownership, twisting it back and forth while humming. Then while in the same position, I bring it down to my mouth. It's a ballet, really!

there it is--the face that can launch a thousand cookies. what wonderful shots!
chocolate chip cookies right out of the oven that you have to juggle with your fingertips, trying not to touch a chip that has reached 451 farenheit. blowing on said cookie to cool it down enough for that first heavenly bite. then the eyes roll back in the head and the mmmmmm begins deep in the throat.
pure, simple pleasure.
