(is my life being eaten by the internet?)
I was going to post a piece today on canned pears , waxing on about the glory of fall fruit, but the truth is I am too depressed . Saddened by the news of Gourmet Magazines shuttering I am instead eating the pears in vanilla syrup, with chocolate,lots of chocolate.
I know the internet has made made our lives faster and in some ways much more interesting. I know it has increased the exchange of information between cultures and is considered the great democratizer. I love blogging and the platform that the internet has given writers like me and a whole new generation of foodies. But I am saddened to see the demise of publishing, the closing of neighborhood stores, and the homogenization of the movie business.
I am going to have a nap, wake me up yesterday.
