Public Radio Kitchen, a production of WBUR (90.9) Boston, interviewed me for their website.

I like the Zen proverb about cooked people.

Hm. I love cooking. It agonizes me but I love making good food for people. I have to try really hard not to fish for compliments when serving something new.
As far as eating the pears when you're done, Franklin, I imagine it would be tougher if the pears were going to sit there perfectly forever. In the end, though, something's going to eat them, so it might as well be you.
When I eat fruit I like to toss the cores or skins out into the yard for the woodland creatures to snack on. A week ago I threw out a pear core, then went out. When I got back that afternoon the core was sitting, right side up, a few nibbles out of it, right on my front stairs. It's as if a squirrel wanted to say, yes, I saw you threw this out for me. Now clean up after yourself.

Congrats! WBUR (90.9) Boston must be a good station. I am hoping that we will move to Boston in a few years when my wife is done with her course work. She is changing careers.

Franklin, I was thinking about your pear picture with the text & was reminded of Surrealist peinture-poesie from the 1920s-1930s--you know, like the Magritte "Ceci n'est pas un pipe" and the Miro "Un oiseau poursuit une abeille et la baisse"

Anyone interested in cooking should make regular visits to the blog of my friend Peter Barrett.
Piri, thanks - I had never seen that Miro and it's lovely.

Hey Franklin- thanks for the link. And congrats on the interview.
Chris, thank you for the link, etc. I'm familiar with their blog and enjoy it when I need to be reminded that there are bigger geeks than myself out there.

Congrats on the "ink".
Cooking and art-making have a lot in common. Taste and nourishment, to begin with.
