Why Manna?

If there is any food that could be defined as magical, it is manna.

I like the idea of magical food. Does that mean I believe in the idea of magical food? I’d like to.

But magic can only happen in the right circumstances, to my mind. It is like luck, or serendipity, or grace in that way.

As an armchair traveller, I’m setting out on a search for manna.

What the effect will be upon me . . . I really don’t know. But at the very least I’ll learn a thing or two.

  1. Fertile proxy: health drinks, those green smoothies and so on, that perfect nutrition, that fuels perfecting lives lived by secular romanticists. People who don’t believe in manna yet believe in it. People who don’t believe in religion yet believe in absolute forms of progress. They drink The Drink, whatever it might be. Are these people, are their ideas, doorways “back” into manna?

  2. Hello ReaderX! Thanks for the very first comment here. 🙂

    Good question you’ve posed.

  3. Could it be a little of both, ReaderX?

    It’s not a thesis, it’s an adventure. 🙂

    As far as moving targets go, if the target is not moving it has probably been aimed at a zillion times and hit repeatedly.

    And yes, the ‘perfect food’ thing certainly has a place in this adventure!
