This is a book on healing a lovely look at the hurting human heart and its captivating reflection Convalescence has never been so beautiful One has to admit that the theme of loss in literature has been one of the most exploited and has been done so masterfully by the best But never have I encountered one on recovery where it has been handled as exuisitely Everyone we love is dying Still to cease living is unacceptable When you lose someone a void is created You seek to fill that hole inside you Stability is what you desire because your once solid world of certainties has crumbled And so we latch onto the most basic things and habits Constant things we know that will never leave and never fail us a kitchen cooking the road running clothing videos pictures songs books You lean on that get strength from the habit till you are strong enough to gamble on uncertain things Hurt is ice It melts it turns to water that evaporates into thin air But ice takes time to melt tear by tear There is nothing you can do but wait and so you do Until the time when the coldness is gone and you sigh and inhale the air that was once pain In a downpour of blessings I prayed as though it were a hymn Let me become stronger Kitchen by Banana Yoshimoto is divided into two stories of love loss and hope It s one of the most breath taking pieces of literature I ve read The stories elegant simplicity feels like a breeze of cold air that can hurt numb and refresh There s also an element in the writing that feels almost evanescent a certain transparency that is pure honesty I wasn t instantly spell binded as you might think It took a while but when it did it felt right Everything was perfectly clear like looking into a small pond seeing your own reflection and washing your face with its cold clear water I really needed this Oftentimes we read books they touch us and we cry but after a few hours it s completely out of mind Sometimes though just sometimes we encounter a book that touches us so directly that it isn t readily manifested by external emotions This book is one of those I didn t cry but I suffered The last paragraph is nothing but one of the most beautiful things I have ever read It stirred something inside me and after reading I felt a deep tranuility I felt at peace It seemed like a heavy burden was lifted from me and after a delicious calm radiated through me It still does I feel light I feel like flying soaring The worst is yet to come but I feel hope

Can cooking help you cope with the despondency you feel from loss I m not talking about wolfing down garlic mashed potatoes from a pan I m talking about a multi course gourmet meal that you are willing to toss out if it s not perfect and start all over again That s the theme of Kitchen Our main character is a twentyish woman who lost her father at an early age and then her mother She went to live with grandparents but her grandfather died and then her grandmother and now she has no living relatives She turns to her kitchen But she is also invited to live with the family of a young man she has known since childhood Now here s a modern family just two people the young man and his mother But did I tell you his father is his mother Or to phrase that correctly his mother is his father It s a transgender situation The two young people are drawn to each other but then he is hit by loss They grapple with trying to help each other maybe love each other or maybe just pity each other and try to stop each other from jumping over the edge This very short novel has a short story appended at the end Moonlight Shadow This story also about loss and it could be the same woman takes us into magical realism Maybe they do come back at least to tell you they re okI found the two stories very moving and fascinating to read Translated from the Japanese Photo Model of a Japanese kitchen ca 1880 from peabodyharvardedu
