Why would anyone write 100 words on soup as a writing exercise? The answer is to pay tribute to a little cup of love that warms my heart in the quickest way possible. When this busy mom has only a few precious minutes between breastfeeding and a new freelance writing gig, a little bit of soup is a lovely nourishing meal. If it is my favorite tom yum goong, you can forget about it. My ten minutes spent with my fingers around my bowl and slowly sipping this restorative broth feels like a delightful vacation. It’s all the rest I need.
