A few days ago I went to a ‘Farmers Market’ near Hastings, Hawke’s Bay, and found this delightful stand.
The jams and pickles had been delightfully laid out and presented, a joy to behold – and, I’m sure, to eat. It got me thinking. In this age of supermarkets and instant food, isn’t it inspiring to think that people are still making things in older ways – presenting them in older ways – and selling them to people who appreciate the time and craft that has gone into them? I think that’s inspiring for anybody, and especially for writers.
