State of Bliss

I don’t think I’m that different from a lot of other people when I find myself wishing I was somewhere else.  Sometimes I yearn to be in a cosmopolitan city like London.  Often I fantasize about an escape to a tropical island like Tahiti.  I admit I don’t always appreciate literally what’s just outside my door.  I’ve lived on the lake for 25 years, but the view that never fails to wow guests has for me become a sort of visual Muzak.  Though I know I would sorely miss it if I moved.  To some extent, it’s only human nature to long for greener grass.  It’s true with regard to food, too.

About This Blog

Dan CurdI found my interest in writing by accident. My training and first job was as a graphic designer. Unemployed, the only employment I could find in advertising at that time was as a copywriter. Somehow, I convinced Richard Newman & Associates to hire me. Later I learned they were desperate. Madison has been my home off and on since 1957 (nonstop for the past 31 years). I write about food, which I love. – Dan Curd
