A bunch of tales I wanted to share with you

A tale I read

Discussing How To Live Meaningfully... by Daniel Cockrill
[How To Live Meaningfully... by Daniel Cockrill]

A tale I heard

Musician and chef Cerys Matthews on her cookbook Where the Wild Cooks Go:

"I always think the best music and the best food have spent less time in a factory and more time in the hands of someone who loves what they’re doing and they’re speaking directly to you. I love the modern world. Love the internet, absolutely adore it. And I love the ease of life that we’re privy to, to go into a shop and grab what we want. But I’m also very, very aware that a lot of the products around us are there entirely to make profit. They don’t care about our health, they don’t care about the planet’s health. I hand on heart think the best food is made in people’s homes across the world. In the smaller restaurants, the holes in the walls and the street stalls. And I think some of the world’s best wisdom trickles down through ordinary communities and people. So that’s why it’s a folk cookbook in a way, it’s my tribute to normal, ordinary, gorgeous people, us."

A tale I wrote

Julia downed
her bottle of red wine.
She felt wonderful
and went back
to answering the phones
and tinkering
with spreadsheets.
