EVINK: Soup is a metaphor for things we value

Recently, I was asked about a hobby I enjoy. Without much time to think about it, I said, “Soup. I like to make soup.”

It’s true. On Saturday mornings, I get up and run with The Running Bunch, a very intelligent, compassionate and athletic group of women. I feel like I won the friendship lottery to join them. Then I shop for groceries, all the weekly necessities, and I secretly put soup ingredients in my cart. Not that my family is opposed to me shopping for soup ingredients, but sometimes I am not sure what kind of soup I will be making, so it is even a secret to me.
