      These are a row of multiple sardines, that had been de-headed and gutted for the pan, and in turn queuing for my belly. And after that, the toilet. They were the ones in the video, shallow frying themselves!

      • A medieval Inquisition feel to sardine for consumption preparation that could easily apply to the aubergine (egg plant in you land?)

        You may be on to something, or just given me something to be onto. I have been onto eggs, and the toilet rolls have gotten the ditch of approval. This happened around 4-5 days ago. Eggs are the new thing, along with their cartons! And now, this week, I must go and see these blessed aubergine’s, it’s been too long, way too long

      • The blessed egg carton…not I hope the see-through plastic ones so favoured by supermarkets these days but proper cardboard ones…now they were cartons! I make a brinjal bhaji with aubergines as it happens

        I have not ever seen, see-through cartons! What. I am now on high alert for such cartons. High alert.

      • Well they are there…if I had one I’d send you a pic although I recall they are mainly for battery farm eggs as opposed to free range (probably need not have added that last bit)

      • Eggs see free range and escape the breakfast table although sadly as soon as they found sanctuary away from the farm a magpie spotted them and scoffed the lot.

        I’m still semi debilitated from the last post, but a little black and white giggle twas had!

      Who could ever know, if only we could enter into the minds of the sardine

      • Wouldn’t it be exquisite to be able to swim (or fly – but I know of no flying sardine) as if powered only by conscious intent? The Indian ancients said birds were supernatural because of their ability to fly by thought. Perhaps the nearest we come to such physical grace is in dance? That said, I have had flying dreams, as have many of course – it may be a sort of atavistic impulse or something. They are incredible experiences, the sensation of controlling movement through space with intentional thought alone. This is how the sardine spends its life I suppose.

        What a beautiful thought, thank you for sharing. Unlike many others, flying is one of those things I don’t avidly seek or overtly admire. Many people I have spoken to also tell me their dream experiences, and lucid dreaming where they are awake and asleep, and the first thing they do is try to fly. Some even spending many months focusing intently on trying to fly in a dream. It seemed to me a strange quest, but one they were quite adamant on. Each to their own, I guess. I think many people try to experience these ‘supernatural’ experiences and forget that the world already is, as is, supernatural.

        Flying is a most gorgeous expression though. And I do love the metaphor of the flying sardine in an ocean of sky.
