Launched May 1st, 2009 with a tentative start... this blog evolved into a space to bring things I'm curious about or fascinated with whilst adapting to life in a new city, a new direction with my work and in the online realm. Early on postings were frequent and wide-ranging in focus. Attention slowly spread to new online engagements as ideas developed and formats trialled to extend those ideas. However, this blog has always remained at the centre of all that followed ...the conversations, journeys and glimpses into creative worlds generated here have long enriched my days beyond all imagining and I return always to pick up the thread with gratitude for the experience and for those who've passed through, perhaps joined up or stopped to converse!

I was intrigued. On several accounts its not my particular scene. I'm much more interested in a rustic and not too fussed over version of food for the everyday - yes - interested in slow food principles, organics and definitely cooking from scratch! I did find this blog a departure into a fascinating alternative universe with some references to the issue of biodiversity, as in this post on citrus below which got my genuine interest:
This citrus is from a citrus enthusiast who is growing over 300 rare species not for commerce. Read about that when you click above on post on citrus. Such an enterprise as that is indeed a worthwhile one when we are losing our heritage of seeds and plants at an alarming rate.
