My Lamb Curry

i made a lamb curry tonight with

mint and butternut squash

soaked in coconut sun

orkney lamb with

marbled fat

like creeks

or veins

without

blood

but no

no magic

it should have

given itself to me

surrendered

its flavor

but no it

lacked magic

despite the mint

and constant affection

the music never played

magic never came

it just lacked

magic

  • What – still monastacism! I am not mono which suggests solo but rather relationo. I am also amazed that the Syriac ascetics need remodelling into the 21st century. They had it all. This is surely an evolution of a long standing idea, an essential long standing idea. Is Zinzendorf the sweetener to curry favour with the protestants? Surely we are followers of Jesus first, curious about how this spiritual reality connects with the unreality within which we live. Shalom

  • Yesterday’s meat pie
    Slow cooked gentle perfection
    Under golden crust

    Mmmnnn… food poetry.
    Ah! Almost time for lunch but
    work to finish first.

  • I’m in favor of the Google ads just because of the ones that showed up on this page. Leg of lamb, natural grass-fed lamb, Laura’s lean beaf, niman rich lamb meat. yum!

  • mmmmm….
    I just moved back to the states after 8 months in London, and everyone makes a face like they just swallowed a rotten lemon when I mention how I love bangers and mash and meat pie. I especially miss the lamb curry for 4 quid in Camden Town.
    I’m salivating as if someone just rang the bell…
