You can reach Heather Blakey, the sole operator of Soul Food, by posting on one of the Soul Food bloggers or by sending a clearly identified, subject specific email to heatherblakey at fastmail dot fm
When Heather has recovered from running from one end of this estate to the other, has done with the dusting and polishing needed to make the place looks good for unannounced guests, she will make contact.
Of course, if the servants finally arrive to lend a hand, she may reach you sooner.
special thanks to Evonne C E Tay who suggested that I take the plunge and present these options.

Provide Bricks for the Lemurian Abbey
One of the main sources of revenue for monasteries throughout the medieval period were pilgrims. Pilgrims could be induced to come to a monastic house by a number of means, the most common being a religious relic owned by the abbey. Such a relic might be a saint's bone, the blood of Christ, a fragment of the cross, or other similar religious artefact. The tomb of a particularly saintly person could also become a target for pilgrimages.
Pilgrims could generally be induced to buy an isignia which proved they had visited a particular shrine. Some popular pilgrimage centres built hotels to lodge pilgrims. The George Inn in Glastonbury is one such hotel, built to take the large number of pilgrims flocking to Glastonbury Abbey.
Time constraints may mean that you cannot make art your daily practice but you may have time to make the pilgrimage to the City of Ladies
