‘Transform your Life in Five Easy Steps’.
‘Find an ancient woodland with deciduous trees, a canopy that makes dappled shade. Ensure the soil is rich and peaty.
Stand up close to a bean plant, curling its tendrils up the canes of its wigwam, part the leaves and journey inwards to their molecules, fed by warmth and rain. Maybe they will burst into life before your very eyes, sprouting long green bodies every day. Pick a handful and cook them for your supper. There’ll be more tomorrow’.
The meaning of life.
