Preparing my favorite quiche
(adapted to tart form)
from this cookbook.
"Eating with the fullest pleasure - pleasure, that is, that does not depend on ignorance - is perhaps the profoundest enactment of our connection with the world. In this pleasure we experience and celebrate our dependence and our gratitude, for we are living from mystery, from creatures we did not make and powers we cannot comprehend."
-The Pleasures of Eating, Wendell Berry
I went to hear Wendell Berry
read from selected works
(some poems, a story)
and speak on issues dear to me.
It was heartening
to see so many people gathered.
