At breakfast I finish my coffee and see the shadow of my fingers through the porcelain bowl that I’m drinking from.
I’m moved to capture the fleeting moment on my phone.
I realise that it is a bit of a multicultural moment. I’m drinking Italian style coffee grown in New Guinea in the French style with milk at breakfast from a bowl made by and Englishman living in Australia, thrown and fired while in China. The table is made from Japanese cedar, grown in Australia.
At least the organic full cream milk was produced locally in Picton from our local dairy, but the cows are Friesian and Jersey.
