Are You Feeling Lucky? by mary elizabeth

As part of our Chef Showcase, we are offering a class for the first time here at Living Light: Raw Food Styling for Photography. Denise Vivaldo, world renowned food photographer, has done lots of work with Cherie in the past and is coming to collaborate on tailoring their combined expertise to raw food. It’s going to be exciting and it’s filling up fast. I feel pretty lucky to be a part of this exciting time at Living Light so I can see all the artistry that’s going to come out of this fabulous new class.

Do you believe in luck or a more ordered world view? I believe in luck. Probably because my personality tends to be more grasshopper-like than antish, if you know your Aesop, and we need luck (and ants) to survive. At any rate, I’ve always been a pretty lucky person but there’s some things going on in my life right now that may require a little more than luck. I’m not too worried (grasshopper!) as things usually tend to work out for me, Not that I don’t put effort into things – I do.  But often it seems all the effort in the world doesn’t pay off like a little good luck. (Some of you may call what I’m talking about karma, but some of you aren’t Irish.)

Putting effort into things can have a big pay off too, of course. Like yesterday – my roommate Amanda and I decided to make it the best day ever. We decided the night before, actually. So we came into work with our “best day ever” attitudes and rocked it. Some people liked it and got on board and some people  found it annoying, but it totally worked for us. We had a super fantastic day. How lucky! Our effort paid off.
