Emerson Eats an Apple

Ralph_Waldo_Emerson_ca1857_retouched

“In late October, while working on his Essays, Emerson had another prophetic vision, which he recorded in his journal. “I dreamed that I floated at will in the great Ether, and I saw this world also not far off, but diminished to the size of an apple. Then an angel took it in his hand & brought it to me and said “This must thou eat.’ And I ate the world.”

From Examined Lives by James Miller

    • This makes my day! Thank you for reading my banter. It’s always reassuring to find other people who find details like cake, eggs and apples fascinating too. I’d be happy to try to answer any particular questions that you might have regarding food, philosophy and design.
