When I thought being a woman meant being a man and other bad ideas
Its past midnight here in Frankfurt and I'm sleepless and suddenly remembered your blog . Came here after long. feels good to be back reading your stuff !
So relatable - I never ever wanted to drive cos of the fear of killing myself and others! One of my many phobias. Also the feminist in the noughties- so me !
I enjoyed reading your Delhi/ cooking piece
I strongly recommend The Bangala table, an excellent chettinad recipe cook book and also the YouTube cooking series by Jacques pepin
So many things resonated for me in this post. I re-watched Ted Lasso just a week ago. Also watched All Creatures Great and Small Season 3 and thought of re-reading James Herriot (I have three of the books I first bought and read when I got my first job). The nostalgia of reading all fo Erich Segal's books. The fear of driving (I could never be comfortable behind the wheel due to unreasonable fears, stopped long ago despite joining driving classes multiple times over the years, my license expired last year). Cooking through employed-life to post-marriage life and how I'm privileged now to have someone cut and chop and clean up after. A cookbook I love - Five Morsels of Love by Archana Pidathala. And thank you for the links, I love reading your recos. Especially for Margaret Atwood's, didn't know she started on this platform. Hope the temperature rises, and you have a good trip, stay who you are or want to be (the ending of this post is great!). Also, where did you watch the TV show Julia?
