I am not a great writer. Not a particularly good one either but I do have a firm belief – even utter reverence – for words. Whenever I come across a beautiful sentence, a string of words arranged in an unusual or striking manner, I can bask in it at length, reading and re-reading it, going back to it, letting it swirl in my head. Sometimes I can be more attached to individual sentences than to a whole body of work.
Trying to make sense of the world and life through food and words.
Summer should be all about hammocks in the shade, cool drinks and laziness. So far, mine has been fairly hectic. I am clearly doing something wrong! But at least I am busy doing things that interest me, being with people I love and, before the days shorten dramatically, I will have struck a balance between doing and…doing nothing. Hope your days are lazy and cool.
The benefit of living in a location chosen by many for their vacations is that, when I am at home, it feels a bit exotic, a bit like being on holiday. My friends and family from all over the world agree. Which means that my house, in Summer, and sometimes at Christmas, doubles up as a bed and breakfast, albeit at no charge.
