The Umbrella Effect


mushroom is like love


Of all food... why mushroom?  Well, one simple reason is... LOVE is truly EVERYWHERE.  IF only nurtured properly, it can grow in abundance and offer endless supply of healthy benefits like love can give the heart nourishment when in full bloom.

But there are types of mushroom that can harm like love that is obsessive and selfish.  Sudden anger and heartbreak may cause a poisoned mind to commit ruthless acts.

So, what's on your mind now?
Can you think of any food other than mushroom to best define what love means to you?

  6. I do not eat mushroom when I first came here in America :-) I find it gross :-( but when I was pregnant with my second child, all I crave is mushroom and now I love eating mushroom :-) I like it with my steaks or mix it with my meat :-)

  9. Pretty interesting analogy. Yes, love can be like mushrooms. Although they grow everywhere, you still have to be careful which one to pick. Some will be the best thing you've ever tasted while others will poison you. Just like love.

    For me, I'd picture a wheel of Parmigiano Reggiano cheese. Just like love, it goes through a lot of pressing and requires time and daily nurturing. Looks like a lot of work, but in the end, you get this really great tasting wheel of cheese that just gets only better with age.

  24. I honestly didnt think about this type of analogy until I read your post. I must say, I can agree with you. Love is sweet and lovely but can also be harmful as mushroom. A mushroom can be anywhere just like love.

  25. wow, this made me think... hmmm... i'd say coffee, because too much of it gives me palpitations and makes me so stressed out, but too little of it makes me drowsy and my energy level is low. just like love. hehe so there should definitely be balance. :-)
