It could be that the sun is shining.
Warm on your shoulders, your eyelashes, your smile.
Or it could be that it snowed, two months before winter officially starts.
Hands in your mittens and crisp air on your cheeks; perhaps you laughed out loud anyway.
It could be that you spent last night sobbing for reasons that are hard to admit, or it could be that you met a friend after work for dinner and kombucha and, following hours spent talking on her couch, she pulled out a vegan chocolate pistachio tart with a cornmeal crust that tasted like confirmation of everything your eyes had sparkled about moments before.
It could be that your heart needs a lift from grey waves threatening to engulf you, or it could be that your hands are already clapping with delight over the bright glowing morning ahead.
It could be the snuffly nose of a puppy, or the cat sitting on your front porch awaiting his afternoon pat.
It could be any of these things, or all of these things, everything forever and always.
But I can promise you this: no matter what day you’re having, this raw vegan carob avocado mousse will make it better. It is silky, rich, sweet, dark, comforting, exciting, healthy (avocado! all that fibre and good fat!), happy, wondrous, perfect.
Forever and always.
