Persian Chickpea Cookies (Nan-e Nokhodchi)
Today, at 12:57 pm, the sun will do something too earth science-y for me to explain eloquently, and it will be spring.
This is my fourth post that mentions the Persian new year, Nowruz, which coincides with the first day of spring. A fourth post is probably excessive considering that only a few people (if any) who read this blog, besides my father (Hi, dad!), probably celebrate the holiday.
But this year, I need this holiday. I need the feeling and the brightness and the newness that it represents, at least, as my soul, body, and mind—mostly my mind—struggle to feel signs of life and to see green instead of grey.
