It’s been silent around here. Mainly because I have not gotten down to making anything for weeks. I fractured my knee falling off my bike, and a day later, while I hobbled around on crutches, the husband got wiped out by some nasty flu bug. Then the kids. It was a rough week. I have been recovering from that week for about a fortnight now.
Three days ago I realised I am but a month away from the new semester starting. And that I have prepared absolutely nothing for the undergraduate course on environmental governance and political ecology that I will be teaching. So I started eating cake. For three day now I have had cake for breakfast, lunch, tea, and supper. Whenever I open my laptop to work on that course syllabus all I can think of is cake.
Cake. Whatever the problem is, cake is the solution. Cake, coffee and chocolate. I have no idea why my friends think of me as some organic vegetarian pope.
