      It is immensely satisfying baking bread from scratch. Aside from grinding the grains into flour or mining the salt, it is created with love and gratitude to the cosmos for blessings that allow it to happen. There are no artificial ingredients. There is no sugar in it. Little salt, to inhibit the growth of the wild yeast that works its magic. Flour, water, leftover cooked brown rice, salt, wild yeast, and a bit of oil for the pans. The process takes a couple of days to complete. Right now the dough is on its final rise before going into the loaf pans, sitting close to the wood burner. There is a sense of action, of growth, of communion with nature and with food, kneading the dough and watching it slowly rise through the diligent efforts of tiny wild critters doing their thing.



      When the bread is baking, the air is full of the pungency of sourdough. Pulling the loaves out and tapping them for the right hollowness is music to my ears. Once the right timber they roll out of their pans onto the cutting board. Their golden good wholesomeness creates a palpable aura. Impatience as I wait until a loaf is cool enough to cut. Butter smeared on the warm manna from heaven. The first bite with a deep sigh of completion. Home made is good. Home made is grounding.

        One time when I was little, my friends went on strike and wouldn't play with me until my dad made some home made doughnuts.
