If bread, the staff of life, feeds the body; stories nourish the soul. –Alex Morritt
Family, friends, and food are ways to celebrate life. There is a communion of spirits when you mix these three together. Stir in shared adventures anywhere in the world and a story unfolds.
From 1987-2018, I lived with my family in six countries; Singapore, Cyprus, Taiwan, Germany, France, and home-base in Colorado, USA. During our early years overseas, while living in Singapore, I discovered the books of M.F.K. Fisher [1908-1992].
Fisher wrote about people, places and food in settings from California to France. Reading her books was influential to my own story telling. It’s a metaphoric recipe. We are nourished by good food. We are nurtured by great friendships and love.
Therein lies the thread to my story writing. It’s not always about food, but there is always an adventure or friendship or love.
Since we repatriated to living in the U.S. in 2018, stories have evolved to include people or ideas I find interesting as well as remembrances of our overseas life. Perhaps the byline for A Taste of Mind should become “window to a life”…
