Dreams of beans may be food for imagination

Janet McNeill shares a favourite dream story from Thomas Moore's Care of the Soul in today's post, "Beans!". McNeill appreciates Moore's observation:
"... That dream sounded like a Zen story to me and led me to reflect for a long time on the value of plain pedestrian food, especially when we consciously order up something more special. Life has a way of plopping extreme ordinariness in front of us when we are entertaining exotic gourmet daydreams."
