No-Bake Pumpkin Pie

What does a girl do, when she’s a little down? Missing her kids at Christmas. Meditate, breathe, make chocolate, sharpen machetes, meditate. Make a berry pie, chop up the old banana tree, eat granola and chocolate coconut milk, meditate. Walk, rest, meditate. Be in the moment, oh yeah.
