Realisations on your lunch break
By Alice Gale-Feeny
In the morning, I notice how Weetabix is described using four words: Whole Wheat Cereal Biscuits. I sit looking at the Andrex packaging and consider the term Quilts as a way of defining the texture and feel of the loo roll. In the shower, through the heavy droplets, I can see the back of the shampoo bottle. The lines of the bar code continue as strands of hair. At lunch, at the same moment as the drop-in meditation session begins, so does the construction work outside. At dinner, I think about the day rather than the food I am eating.
