I chose the background for this blog because it reminded me of a kitchen table. The old fashioned kind that is not used only for meals, but also homework, craft projects, conversation, and miscellaneous household chores. The kitchen table that, more likely than not, will have some random objects lying around.

My thoughts on beginning the blog are here: The kitchen is open .  As modern life makes us more and more detached from both our food and our biology I still believe that kitchen work is sacred work.  My absolutely favourite quote is by astrophysicist Carl  Sagan:  To make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe. It speaks to me about how everything in the universe, from sunlight to stardust  is intertwined and necessary to keep us alive.
