over the rainbow
skies are blue

Grey day – inside or out? Chatting with a friend today (on a Lakeland grey day!) reminded me of the importance of making time for daydreams – about all the wonderful places, encounters and events that lie ahead of us. Limitless possibilities and choices. Close your eyes, encourage recall of blue skies and warmth somewhere, and perhaps of lovely company, and away you go – daydreaming. And daydreams are worth their weight in gold, even if they only stay that way. But some ‘really do come true’

I guess all of us daydream about food. I’m still working on losing some of the pounds that girded themselves about my waist over the Christmas period – so perhaps my culinary reveries have been sharpened a tad.

One of the ingredients that will combine with those in this photo is presently browning in the pan. I know what outcome I’m dreaming of, and thinking particularly of a world renowned city where I once revelled in the most enormous dish of it. What does this photo call to mind for you? And where?
