“Bread making is one of those almost hypnotic businesses like a dance
from some ancient ceremony. It leaves you filled with one of the worlds
sweetest smells…there is no chiropractic treatment, no Yoga exercise, no
hour of meditation in a music-throbbing chapel that will leave you emptier
of bad thoughts than this homely ceremony of making bread.”
