"Kids and adults alike can benefit from taking a moment in everything you do in life. Even those tasks you have done 1,000 times before, experiencing them as if it is the first time it has been tasted, touched, smelt, heard, and seen before. Sara brings eating an ordinary apple alive and extraordinary."
