Magpie Tales: A marriage of Sushi
Why a woman chooses to bind herself to rice, I do not understand.
Labor intensive to cultivate and in need of ample water, yet still she lays upon this seed, exposed herself, to what it might bring. Named together, they are 'sour tasting', but that is history. History upon which artistry is built in the hands of a master. Married with wasabi, a splash of salty soy sauce---a delicacy to be savored.
Some conundrums are not meant for understanding, only to be appreciated.
And that I do, most vigorously.
