Proposition_ Cosiness is a form of self-care that allows the self to be all but absent – It is a feeling of being held. It is caring for the self by returning to a feeling of being held, being supported. It is not self-indulgent, nor lazy. Consciously considering cosy when the environment is dark, coldContinue reading “Cosy/Cozy in times of SARS CoV-19”

Morocco. I repeatedly misspell the name of the country in the language that is my mother tongue. It is also known as le maroc, le royaume du maroc, marrakus, al-maghrib. Morocco exists in at least five languages and three different alphabets. Analphabetisme is high in this country of many names. Many do not have aContinue reading “Morocco”
At Ease with Strawberries
They were never my favourite as a child. Strawberries. I found them too big, too perfectly red, too shiny. They were a sweetness that almost tipped into sour and every one was an explosion, the mouth filling with the same water that was used earlier in the year to force the first beside-the-road flush. IContinue reading “At Ease with Strawberries”
Report on Slow Cheese 2017
At a certain point past the teens, there can come a feeling of contraction, like when the curtains are pulled in a bit on both sides of the cinema screen. Up until this point, the learning and living has been diverse, broad and mostly on the surface. Some time around the mid-twenties the hope isContinue reading “Report on Slow Cheese 2017”

Good Gouda: Cool, ay?
Cork, NW We the Irish have been geographically negligent. Not all areas technically west in the county of Cork have been given equal amounts of love in the promotion of “West Cork”. The state of affairs as it currently stands is the evocation of jagged sea cliffs, swooping birds, and a striped landscape of moss,Continue reading “Good Gouda: Cool, ay?”
Back to Buffalo.
Where the Buffalo Roam A visit to Macroom Buffalo Cheese in Clonclud an hour west of Cork city brings me in close contact with majestic beasts. Water buffalo have been on Irish soil since 2009. The herd began with a head of thirty, brought over by boat from northern Italy and settled in the lushContinue reading “Back to Buffalo.”
Small is Smart: Black Locust Farm
A piece of land is as useful as they who farm it make it, no matter the size. A farmer is a polymath, often an autodidact. Farmer knowledge varies according to the crop. For example, to succeed in horticulture, plant farmers are asked to be familiar with biochemistry, microbiology, engine mechanics, landscaping, pruning, rotational planning,Continue reading “Small is Smart: Black Locust Farm”
