Are you optimistic about 2017?

I didn’t start the year in a very optimistic mind-set. I was disappointed…about so much. The simple cartoon words above kicked me into a better frame-of-mind. If I want flowers, I have to plant them.

If you want to [insert word here], you have to do something.

I’m starting with our magazine. Edible Memphis celebrates its 10th anniversary with this issue. We’ve decided to shake it up a bit. We’ve retired some columns and are developing some new ones. We’ve got new writers and partnerships, a freshened design, and are looking at it all from the point of doing. We want action. Here are some new tools.

Cook. Discover an ingredient. Support artistic endeavors. Explore a new-to-you part of town. Visit a treasured spot nearby. Eat better. Grow something. Be active.

We’ve said it before — things start with food. Conversations start around a table. Making a new habit starts with one step. That step can be food. You’ll see how it makes things happen — a garden grows, you eat better, you discover someone or something — and then it’s a simple jump to take action about other things.

If you want flowers, plant them.

If you want change, change things.

Eat. Drink. Read. Think. Cook. Go. Act.
