corner view: breakfast

the breezes at dawn have secrets to tell you.
don't go back to sleep!
you must ask for what you really want.
don't go back to sleep!
people are going back and forth
across the doorsill where the two worlds touch;
the door is round and open.
don't go back to sleep!


from break (v.) + fast (n.). Cf. Fr. déjeuner "to breakfast," from L. dis-jejunare "to break the fast."

i prefer to break my fast when the others have left the house for school and work, and i can sit in silence.
the most common breakfast here in norway is bread or knekkebrød (literally 'breaking bread', as it is thin, hard and breaks off when you take a bite) and cow's milk, coffe or juice. the knekkebrød is often eaten with white or brown cheese (a norwegian sweet cheese). on mine this morning i had garlic cream cheese with avocado and herbs, and sliced cheese with salad, cucumber, cherry tomatoes and grapes. to drink; soy chocolate milk. always.

yummy! that sounds delicious. i absolutely adore norwegian crackers/bread. i hope you don't mind that i called them crackers. that's how they are marketed here in japan and maybe in the US too.

i've never had brown cheese, but i'd like to try sometime...especially with that bread.

i love knaekbroed! we eat that in denmark too :) and i also love brown cheese from norway. no way you'd be able to find it here in israel, but in denmark you can get it in the supermarket. your photos are lovely.
