Our kitchens are filled with ghosts. You may not see them, but you could not cook as you do without their ingenuity: the potters who first enabled us to boil and stew; the knife forgers; the resourceful engineers who designed the first refrigerators; the pioneers of gas and electric ovens; the scale makers; the inventors of eggbeaters and peelers.
How fading are the joys
we dote upon!
line by John Norris
in The Cat's Table,
We all have an old knot in the heart we wish to untie.
Do you have one? What is it?
Home may be where the heart is but it's no place to spend Wednesday afternoon.
