Behind the Glass

                                     The Object of Desire

IMG_3758Passing by this high-end Culinary store “Williams-Sonoma” in Vancouver with my husband and son, I stopped in mid stride to stare at this masterpiece of a cooking range.

Slight palpitation and I think my breathing stopped.

My son said what do you think it costs?

I said, Oh it’s got to be $10,000 , I said when I came toI mean really. Who would pay more? It’s an oven. And $10,000 is a lot of money.

Lets go in and see, he said.

Sure.

We were approached by the store assistant and I asked about the oven in the window.

Ah the La Cornu Stove, He smiled, Yes that model is $47,000.

Then he continued to tell me that the company started in 1908 and that each oven is hand crafted and made to order in France, shipped and professionally installed. In what would not be a modest rancher.

Well, I guess that justifies it.

I bet it makes a first class Mac and Cheese.

Recovering Creative

I live on a tiny island on the Canadian west coast with about 300 of my neighbours. I am a Red Seal chef and certified baker (retired), an artist, an amateur photographer. I write, (unpublished so hesitate to call myself A Writer) sing, and can bang out some reasonable sounding chords on a guitar. And I grow a veggie garden. Older, wiser, and armed with insights and experience, I am on a conscience pursuit of reclaiming my creative life. I see it as a career change. Next level.
