Foods We Love to Hate: Knowing Why

Foods We Love to Hate: Knowing Why - Why do we hate certain foods? Have you ever considered what foods you hate and why you hate them? There may be more to it than finicky tastebuds. This is part one in a series of articles about food dislikes.
It really does make a mind wonder how food, emotion, and experience all come together to create a judgment, often a life-long judgment about a certain food. This article begins the process of discovering relationships of food and people.

Poem - Dreaming Words

Poem by Denny Lyon

Pastel Drawing by Denny Lyon

Dreaming Words

Warm comfortable drifting
Toggling between this waking world
And the world of dreams symbolic
Sheets, those delicious summer skimmers
Glide as bodies turn side to side in repose



Softly the growing silence
Easily falling down to fade

*Wake up!*
Comes an unwelcome startling voice
Eyes closed
Face grimaces a frown
*Wake up!* voice insistent, repeats

Ascending the dark stairway of knowledge
Rubbing my inner mind’s eye
Flinging open the huge door to light
Asking *What?!*
About to fall teetering backward
Into the comforting quiet dark


*Write it down*

*Now? It’s the middle of the night!*

Aware it’s a losing battle
Dutifully returning to the waking world of dark
Reaching out, fingers fumbling for bedside notebook and pen
Scribbling on lines overrun from hands half asleep
Too large is the messy handwriting
Next morning tough to decipher

Words tumble down onto paper out of the inner dark
That vast library of knowledge, universal to all
Opening the heavy tall thick door
Written words enter, marching out onto now
The waking world bathed still in eerie moonlight

Fulfilled the bleary-eyed scribe’s task
Tumble backward to welcoming sleep
Covers pulled high over weary, oh, so tired, body
Descending the long narrow stairway




The loving library of inner knowledge
Infinity to yet explore
Artifacts of knowing to drag home
And leave quietly on some welcoming doorstep

“We writers must attach ourselves, and our written words, to personal self-worth. Otherwise the thoughts of our readers will never be lifted up to their potential as a result of reading ours.” - Denny Lyon Copyright 7 July 2008 Photo by swanksalot @ flickr
