Wild Food or The Forager

As I walked from the school this morning after drop-off, I slowed my steps coming up the stairs to the park, caught by the autumn morning light coming through the branches of the plane trees. I didn't want to rush anymore. I have been rushing for months. My mind could very easily list off all the things I could have done with the precious 2 hours of work time I get in the morning before picking the kids up for lunch, but my heart had a different pace and I decided to follow it. I stopped at everything I wanted to really see - the dew on the fallen brown plane leaves, the sunlight through the quince tree and the bird song, the creatures in the bank next to a field, starting their day in their world, waking up perhaps, completely unaware of the busy world we rush through right beside them. I followed the tug to the vineyards and fields and found favorite wild fennel and a brave wild rose blooming next to tiny rose hips. There was catmint in flower, thyme bushing out after the strain of the dry hot summer, and wild white wallrocket blooming. I thought perhaps today's still life should be wild. I gathered some stems from the fields and stopped by the garden to pick a dandelion bunch (I let them grow happily in the garden to eat through the cool months). I remembered the first time I ate dandelion, how we stood in line at the marché to buy from our usual farmer, the one who sang "Pommepommepomme Pomme!" to the tune of Beethoven's 5th whenever someone ordered apples, eyeing the mound of slightly muddy dandelion greens. How we asked him how to prepare them and he pulled out his old knife to show us how to clean them and gave us firm instructions for preparing them sautéed with lardons. I played it over in my mind and walked home to tell a story with the wild foods.

Paper information

*Hemp is one of the oldest fibers on Earth and is an integral part of the history of textiles in France, making it the perfect choice for these prints. For centuries it was used in paper making for its extremely robust fibers and was used in the papers of the Gutenburg Bible and the U.S. Declaration of Independence. Its natural white color means that no optical brighteners are required in the paper's production. This 290 gsm paper is 60% hemp, 40% cotton, acid free, and of the highest archival quality
