Fruit + Bread 4

January 27, 2015

There’s this sandwich spot in Vancouver that everyone seems to love called Meat & Bread. I’d love it too if I ate meat, but it has a tiny menu–too tiny for a vegetarian option. And that’s fine. I respect that. I still enjoy looking at the photos and reading about the new sandwiches they offer. (Is that weird if I won’t eat them? Maybe. But I also like perusing real estate listings in cities I’d never live in. So.) I like that the name is almost an equation–a lunch equation! Surely the best kind of math: meat + bread = lunch. = handheld meal. = satisfaction in the middle of the day.

Woman moves to China with husband and opens a cafe (plug much?!). Couple with baby leave the city and their city jobs to build a teeny, tiny house with all their savings…

A few months ago my sister, Kendall, confessed that she and her husband, Steve, had been doing a lot of soul-searching. I was immediately anxious because their combined soul-searching had, in the past, led them far away from me – to India and Nepal, for example. I had no place getting antsy about them travelling or moving, to be fair I’d probably outdone them on that front over the years, but now they had a little baby (MY niece!) about whom I am very possessive. Besides which, I had finally moved back home… “I am home, you are home, let’s all live in the same one kilometre radius and raise our children together! It’s perfect!!” But apparently not perfect for them. The regular suburban life, which I am suddenly quite enthusiastic about (previously not so much. previously more of a gypsy.), was simply not working well for them. They were dreaming of something different. Something small and different…
