Have you heard the saying, sometimes the whole is greater than the sum of its parts?
It took me a while to figure that out as a child. Math was always my favorite subject in school. And in math we are taught that the whole is supposed to be equal to the sum of its parts. It doesn’t make any sense, until you eat these cookie moon pie things and finally understand.
I found these cookies in the February issue of Bon Appetit. Its two chocolate oatmeal cookies sandwiched together with marshmallow fluff and drizzled with a little melted dark chocolate. Its heaven and hell all in one bite. This whole moon pie is definitely greater than the sum of its parts.
As children we are told that we could find a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Years later after a couple science classes, you realize that the ends of rainbows are always moving depending on where the viewer is standing. That’s when the term “chasing rainbows” clicked in my head.
It doesn’t matter. I still look for rainbows after the storm.
