Today I am grateful for the amazing gift of agriculture and in particular wheat, which originated in the Fertile Crescent, one of very few centres where food production arose independently. From there, it spread as far as Ireland and India. (Described in the Jared Diamond‘s Guns, Germs and Steel) I recently was sharing my awe at this event with a friend, and she told me today she told me she dreamt of fields and fields of wheat and of travelling through time. Cool! I wish I had that dream!
