What I Shed Today

lightening up a little at a time

cracked olive wood spatula

on January 22, 2014

Once I brought myself to part with our cracked bamboo spoon, shedding this olive wood spatula eventually had to follow. The blade end looks like it was carved from a burl, with such wood’s celebrated tight grain. But after too many cycles of thermal expansion and contraction, it’s finally opened up. I can’t clean down deep in a crack. There’s so much in my life about which I suspect I’m an unwitting fool that I can afford this bit of prudence. To the compost pile it goes.
