I am a contemporary hunter-gatherer. Actually, more gatherer than hunter since someone else has filleted the fish. A banker’s box saves me time. I toss all my gathers into the box bareback. Three apples, one yam, tomatoes on the vine — you get the idea. (I rolled my eyes in disbelief when I once saw a man put one banana in a plastic bag.) It’s true that I put bulk foods and baby spinach into plastic bags. But one banana? The beauty of the box: easy in and easy out. The box goes from the supermarket into my car and, last stop, the kitchen counter. Images are from Faeries – Doorways to the Enchanted Realm.
