Wild Horses

There is imperfect
asking

and imperfect
delivery

there is need
and its sources

there are tame
and wild horses

The Raw and the Cooked, MYTHOLOGIQUES
(A column on the culture of eating and cooking)

One of the dish tonight will be easy and tasty. From the freezer, I took the left over braised beef ribs (cooked previously), re-cook it with daikon, ginger and green onions in a slow cooker, leave it on high for two hours. I like it with rice and perhaps add another green vegetable like sautéed broccoli. (photo and words by Holly Lee)

The Raw and the Cooked, MYTHOLOGIQUES is a new column on the culture of eating and cooking, with contributions by various authors. The column name is borrowed from the title of a book by Claude Levi-Strauss. It is spontaneous, a little amusing but serious at the same time.

Some Trees
by Malgorzata Wolak Dault

 

Number 42

In 1965, American art critic James Lord published a small book called A Giacometti Portrait. It was an account of his agreeing to sit for a portrait by Alberto Giacometti, a portrait the artist assured him would take only a couple of hours to complete. In fact, the work took weeks and weeks and was never really finished.

In 2018, actor/director Stanley Tucci made an intimate and exquisite film of Lord's book.
He cast Geoffrey Rush as Giacometti (the actor looks astonishingly like the artist) and Armie Hammer as James Lord.

In the course of one of their many walks--this time through a Paris cemetery--Giacometti, gazing at the trees overhead, asks Lord an important question:

Giacometti: Have you ever wanted to be a tree?
Lord: No.

Travelling Palm Snapshots
by Tamara Chatterjee

Mexico (November, 2017) – We peregrinated into a the gathering of indigenous tribes, most in full regalia. The ceremony started with traditional smoke blessings and beating drums in honour of the ancestors. As the light dimmed over Plaza de la Danza, the gathering grew thunderous whilst dancing late into the night. The evening lingered with tunas sorbet to gather my pulsating heart.
