Revive the senses through feel-good food. Just do anything food-wise, no matter how small, that makes you zing: pour hot water over fresh herbs for a fragrant tea; buy a whole organic pumpkin for a kitchen table centrepiece; thank a farmer at a farmers' market; put your hands on warm earth; spot a local rosemary bush; snag some for your lamb roast or your hair (Why not? Go nuts!); and comment to share your feel-good spring snippet. If stuck for ideas, mine are yours. Let's unite in support of feel-good food and ethical food practices. Thanks to all too who supported my Spring Feel-Good Food Project. I had a blast! While my food interests are diverse, so is my food writing history (and lifestyle freelance writing and corporate writing, yada...). Please see below right and my new FoodLit Website. Yeah! Please also subscribe for occasional food-fuelled news, ventures and opportunities.

Multi-Generational Mulberries - Day 56, 35 To Go...

 Image by Shuttershock

A tradie comes around first thing in the morning, sees a bowl of mulberries on the table and gets excited. That in itself is interesting. Many tradies wouldn't know a mulberry from a mung bean.

'My grandfather used to have a tree,' he says, the nostalgia lighting up his eyes as happens when recalling fond memories married with food.

'Take some.'

'Oh, no. It's okay,' he says politely.

'Please. Take some.'

He accepts.

'I'll have them with my son.' He's animated, naturally.

'You know mulberry leaves are fed to silkworms so they make better quality silk?' I say.

'Really? Wow. Good food's not such a big thing these days, is it?' he laments.

'Er... it is in some circles.'
And it will be even bigger if I get out of my way and let my work be done.

That's all. Good food-love shared. My work for the day done - and by 9am!
