A Myth to Live By

"Myths are stories of our search through the ages for truth, for meaning, for significance. We all need to tell our story and to understand our story."

The Soul Food Cafe is propelled by just such a myth. The Princess and the Muse is a myth for a writer to live by.

The purpose of this site is to share the imaginary world of the Princess and the myth one writer lives by.

Box of Wonderment
Berried Treasure

A wonderful Advent gift came from Heather at Soul Food Cafe, who prepared a virtual Advent Calendar , with one 'door' to be opened every day through to Dec 26. Like everything at Soul Food, this is a labor of love packed with good writing, thoughts and ideas both for making this a rewarding and fruitful time, and especially for navigating the sometimes stormy and difficult waters of the holiday season.

If you have an artist, a dreamer, a dancer, a mythologist, an imagineer, a writer amidst your clan, make sure to nourish their creative spirit by sending them a box of Chocolates from the Soul Food Cafe. But be cautioned! These hand filled chocolates are totally addictive and may change lives.

Childhood is a state or phase of imaginative existence, the phase in which the world of imagination is still a brave new world and yet reassuring and intelligible.

The strictly non-fat chocolate from the Soul Food Chocolate Box is full of projects and material to help us return to that wondrous kingdom where imagination and creativity rule. The special fillings focus on celebrating childhood joy, spontaneity and imagination.

To participate in the primary school writing program clamber aboard the Magic Writing Tram, designed by Greg Blakey, and do some of the exercises that you will find on board.
