Don't Eat With Your Mouth Full

Where can we live but days?

Notes from a Cocoon
I guess I haven't been feeling very bloggy recently: the annual marking avalanche and various other calls on my time (too tedious to bore anyone with here) are mostly responsible, no doubt, but I feel a certain fallowness, too. That's all right: I like fallow. It's actually a very busy state (not to be confused with furlough), but invisibly so. The theatre is dark, and black-clad stage hands are busy rearranging the set, as noiselessly as they can. This excuse may not impress time-and-motion bods, but it's true.

So as not to abandon these pages, though, here is a picture (which was put on Yume's FB page just today) of me being very proud - in a messy-haired way - of my first plate of sushi.

sushi making april 2014


That was taken a month or so ago, and I've since made a few more forays into the wonderful world of raw fish, so far without mishap. Let's hope my luck holds out.

Proper sushi was on the list of Things I Absolutely Needed to Eat when I was home last month. As luck would have it, a rather renowned Japanese master chef from Seattle recently 'retired' to the little town where I grew up, downsizing to a little restaurant hidden away behind a bank. It's the sort of place where when you order a sushi plate, you don't get to pick your own pieces--it's "chef's choice" and you have to trust he knows what he's doing. It was amazing. I ate a whole plate of delicious sushi. It saddens me that it is so far away.

Hzve you ever watched Jiro Dreams of Sushi? It's high on my list of want-to-sees, but I think I missed it when it was on here.

I like the idea of stagehands-- it is a kindly way to look at life. Also I think it is true, at least for me also.

You look very happy in the picture.

No interest in sushi, but I like the photo. That's a pretty blouse.
