Birthday of the Doughnut Hole

Did you know…

… that today is the birthday of the Doughnut Hole? On this day in 1847, 15-year-old Hansen Crockett Gregory invented the doughnut hole! The former sea captain was interviewed in his later years and said he couldn’t stand the uncooked centers of the fried cakes they made on board so he used a tin pepper can to cut a hole in the dough before frying. And it worked! Indulge yourself today with some doughnuts. 😉

“For everything in this journey of life we are on, there is a right wing and a left wing: for the wing of love there is anger; for the wing of destiny there is fear; for the wing of pain there is healing; for the wing of hurt there is forgiveness; for the wing of pride there is humility; for the wing of giving there is taking; for the wing of tears there is joy; for the wing of rejection there is acceptance; for the wing of judgment there is grace; for the wing of honor there is shame; for the wing of letting go there is the wing of keeping. We can only fly with two wings and two wings can only stay in the air if there is a balance. Two beautiful wings is perfection. There is a generation of people who idealize perfection as the existence of only one of these wings every time. But I see that a bird with one wing is imperfect. An angel with one wing is imperfect. A butterfly with one wing is dead. So this generation of people strive to always cut off the other wing in the hopes of embodying their ideal of perfection, and in doing so, have created a crippled race.”

My Haiku

Forest grew at night
Playful jest outside her grasp
Fearing an autumn
