This Food for thought is about home and refugees; a beloved Stutterer and a stellar Moonlight; easy mornings and easy lunches.
After spending a week in Athens, after only a few irresistibly sunny days which were all at once clamorous and intimately tranquil, nonchalant and deeply moving, I am back in London. Back in this mad beehive, back to my usual ways.

I’ve returned home from home and there’s so much to be inspired by and think about:
