I eat soup noodles for comfort. In fact, noodles of any kind. It's a food that is very easy to eat; it's very soothing and comfortable, too. If I could choose any, I'd say buckwheat was my favourite: it has a very good flavour and is healthy, too.
The very winds whispered in soothing accents, and maternal Nature bade me weep no more.
Circles create soothing space, where even reticent people can realize that their voice is welcome.
Margaret J. Wheatley

It's soothing to realize that my mind's processes are inherently uncontrollable.
