Four months ago, I wrote and sent a letter to Nigella, informing her that I had completed 100 recipes from her ‘Kitchen’ cookbook. (see my first post on this blog here)
I have not heard back from Nigella.
Today’s prompt for Writing 101 asks me to imagine that I discover a letter on a path and that it affects me deeply. I wonder what letter could disturb me so?
And then it occurs to me – perhaps that’s why she hasn’t answered! Perhaps she never got the letter.
That must be it.
It’s lying on a path somewhere – the careful hand-writing (on fine Italian stationery) slowly faded by the elements.
