Good Mood Rising

i don't know how to put it in words...nor describe that intangible feeling...but whenever i make bread i just feel so content. i can compare it to painting a mural or writing a great story. the process is as important as the result. there are so many things i don't know about it...maybe that's why i keep on relishing the experience on making bread by hand. anyone out there who can relate? it'll be some kind of affirmation that i'm not odd or something similar. does anyone have an idea on how to bottle the aroma of freshly baked bread? : )

I certainly know how you feel! There is such a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction. I actually have a freezer that is overflowing with bread, bacause there is just the two of us and I love the process!
