Making Sourdough Starter (I.e. procrastinating)

I just got back from Kiwiland and had an inkling to make sourdough bread, so I began to make some starter less than an hour ago. The problem? I’m already wanting to use it! It takes 24 hours before I’m next meant to do anything to it, but I’m really keen to check the progress, even though I only just put it on.

What’s up with that? I’ll tell you what’s up with that. It’s my way of procrastinating. There are a number of things I have to get done, and making sourdough starter is not one of them. It’s amazing how easy it is for us to get off track, and I have to set myself rules, such as amounts of time of work to do before taking a rest.

If you’ve put your mind to something, at least give it a decent shot before going on to something else. Otherwise we’d never get anything done!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
