Need: Seeking Stories About Butter!
Hello All Lovely People!
I am a writer and artist in northern California, and I am currently writing a poetic prose
piece about BUTTER. For me, butter is emblematic of life; a primal, beautiful substance
which connects us to the sun, through the plants and the animals, and gives us strength.
Where I am living it has been a challenge to actually find someone with a cow, where I
can get my own fresh milk & make butter by hand, but I am doing this. It is a great joy
to jump up and down and shake a jar of cream until it suddenly changes, like a young
butterfly, into a new form.
I'm writing to see if anyone out there would like tell me some of their memories & stories
about butter, if it is a part of your life! I'm particularly interested to hear people talk about
what it's like to live with cows, and receive the milk that eventually becomes butter. Or
anything else you feel like sharing. Also, if you are NOT able to get or make butter, that
is interesting too.
Thank you so much; I hope all is well.
