In the four years I have been accommodating the diagnosis, treatment, recovery, recurrence, collateral damage, relationship changes, financial collapse and changed identity associated with cancer, I have thought a lot about the position I have given food in my life.
I have some observations to make based on some wide reading and my own experience of cooking, sharing and eating food. So I have asked the question "Why is food so important?" because I want to give my answer. Fair enough? And the topic of 'food' always gets peoples' attention. Doesn't it?
I have to stop now because it has just been made clear to me - in subtle ways designed for me alone - that it is my turn to do the shopping, and domestic harmony is crucial. See what I mean? I will be back later on today. If there are replies by then that would be great as the topic is one we all share regardless of what I write. Don't we?
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
