“The arts are not a way of making a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven's sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.”
― Kurt Vonnegut, A Man Without a Country

Saw a pile of Chinese cabbage at this vegetable and meat market in the Pune cantonment. Shivaji market. I have found a genuine Korean restaurant near where I work. I had been advised by the proprietor to grab and buy a head of Chinese cabbage whenever I saw one before the 600 or so Koreans who live in Pune got to it. To fulfill my dream of making kimchi at home in Pune. So I did! Its being salted down as I write, along with some daikon radish. Tomorrow, the pepper and garlic. It will be a vegetarian one.
