a privileged voice

The fear of failure and a lack of imagination - especially in cooking, is all it takes to burn a meal. Cooking and nourishing is the engine of life. And like everything there is wisdom in the charred bits of life. The benefits of failure and an imagination wide enough to be open to others' suffering - these are powerful forces. Although I don't think JK Rowling had cooking in mind during her commencement address to the graduates of Harvard University.
