Artistic Afternoons: Spring Onions: "To Be Hungry is to Be Great" [a poem by William Carlos Williams] The small, yellow grass-onion, spring's first green, precursor to Manhattan's pavements, when plucked as it comes, in bunches, washed, split and fried in a pan, though inclined to be a little slimy, if well cooked and served hot on rye bread is to beer a perfect appetizer—— and the best part of it is they grow everywhere. __ See if you can find some creative way to “taste” spring today. Perhaps there are dandelion greens or sourgrass in your yard, or some new herbs popping through soil. Or perhaps you’re in a place where you’re having to take on faith that it *is*, in fact spring—and you may want to simply find some taste that represents spring to you, even if it’s drawn from your refrigerator. Whatever you end up with, see if you can find a way of including that in your evening meal today—letting yourself not only see and hear spring, but letting its first green bits meet your tastebuds and nourish your body. See if you can play and meet spring hunger at the same time this afternoon.
