"Just be who you are, calm and clear and bright." - Richard Bach, Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah

Experiments in incandescent living

Imagine you are a white-hot tangle of ice, dust, rock and gases, and as you hurtle across the night sky the rest of us are celebrating your transit with champagne and gourmet lollipops. The universe is vast, but we are only as small as we believe ourselves to be; and if we lived each moment in that same spirit of humble awe with which we now and again gaze at the stars, the world would be an infinitely happier place.

I blog about books and writing on Mondays, travel and spirituality on Tuesdays, and art, knitting and sewing on Thursdays, but above all I want to use this space to explore the magical connection between veganism and creativity (so the juiciest posts go up on Wednesdays!) On this site you’ll also find Where We Make, a Friday feature on artists’ workspaces.

Out of Time and Time for “Cheese”

I have so much to say and so little time to blog it! It’s almost impossible to believe, but Bones & All goes on sale a week from yesterday. For almost two years I’ve had plenty of time, plenty of time, plenty of time, and suddenly the time is (almost) now. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaagh!



So until next week I’m leaving you with this link—last week’s Main Street Vegan radio show, with yours truly as co host and featuring Miyoko Schinner, author of Artisan Vegan Cheese. Big thanks to my dear teacher Victoria Moran for having me on (not to mention bringing me to a lovely cocktail party for the Humane League afterward.) I’ll be blogging about my first cheese-making adventure soon!

Hi! I'm Camille. I only write stories that could never ever happen in real life, though I do believe in real-life magic. If we were in the same room I'd fix you a cup of tea, but for now we'll have to settle for a virtual connection. I'm really glad you're here.
