Walk with Daisy (and Flora the dog)

Ranmore Common, near Effingham, Surrey
Daisy: what is the one missing nutrient, that one ingredient, the ‘jewel’ ingredient that would really nurture and feed everyone?
Food has become so sanitised, it has all the right colours and shapes, but what nutrients have we lost in the process of making food that is mass-produced. What has happened to our relationship to food that we do this and think nothing of it. Different bodies have different nutritional needs to maintain a balance, so perhaps there isn’t one perfect nutrient. The animals in Africa will all congregate to a salts infused water-hole that nourishes them, Neanderthal ‘Man’ was more advanced than originally thought and used penicillin and natural anaesthetics to control pain.
People paint themselves to look as perfect as the apples on the shop shelf, but what rich and juicy ‘jewel’ has become lost?
Tiffany: what is the one ‘thing’ that I can believe in that will save the world? The thing that if I committed my all to, would make all the difference.
Saving the world
the whole wide world
is a thing to do,
said the Ego
You would then be tru-
valued and important,
Yes, that would be a thing
paint the picture.
But you can’t even get that right,
so you put your brush down
tidy away the sketchbooks
But what if all you were meant to save
was this moment
and simply mark the sounds of the birds
onto this piece of paper
