In the afternoon I came back to the apartment where I'm staying to rest and practice. I sat and watched the sky for an hour as it shifted from one weather front to another, the rain clouds sweeping in, clearing away to sun. The little back yards of these English row houses and the open field beyond them seem made for open skies of godlike proportions.
In the evening we went to a pub and learned about white beets and cumin as a pizza seasoning and fish seasoned with fennel. Our dishes were garnished with water cress.
