There is more than the communion of bodies when bread is broken and wine drunk. –M.F.K. Fisher
Family, friends, and food are ways to celebrate life. There is communion of spirit when you mix them together anywhere in the world. Stir in shared adventures 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. Life lessons are picked up along the way.
Therein lies the thread to much of my writing. Highlighting countries where we lived or visited, connecting family or friends or a place worth remembering. It’s not always about food, but there is always an adventure.
If bread, the staff of life, feeds the body; stories nourish the soul. –Alex Morritt

…It seems to me that our three basic needs, for food, security, and love, are so mixed and mingled and entwined that we cannot straightly think of one without the others. So it happens that when I write of hunger, I am really writing about love and the hunger for it, and warmth and the love of it and the hunger for it…and then the warmth and richness and fine reality of hunger satisfied…and it is all one.
