No. 356: 1/12/2010

The train shuddered up the coast, pulling beyond the
built-up areas of Alicante, past Pedro’s house, San Juan
and out onto the cliffs perched over the clear water of
the Mediterranean.  Looking out the window, I felt I had
never properly understood the term ‘sea-blue’ until that
moment.  It was an infinitely rich, passionate experience
of colour, deeply satisfying, the shifting tones of turquoise
and purple contrasting sharply against the yellow, white
and green of the rocks and trees around us.

– Jason Webster, Duende


No. 357: 1/11/2010

Just because you’re a revolutionary doesn’t mean your
idea of a good meal should be Chef Boyardee ravioli
reheated in a dog dish

– Alice Waters, quoted in The United States of Arugula by David Kamp
