Example text

Sometimes we’d go to the dacha that my grandparents had. It’s like a little hut where we’d stay when we wanted to forage. It was on top of a hill, and, at that time, there were only a few other people there, so it was fairly wild. From the dacha, we could just go into the forest and start walking. When you forage, it’s a contemplative state of mind. You’re outside with nature, and you have a chance to discover something together unexpectedly. A lot of times you might find something else besides mushrooms, like an animal maybe.

From my parents’ perspective, foraging was a way to teach us about nature. It’s not necessarily a walk in the park, and it’s also different from hiking because it has another purpose. I think you become more aware of what’s around you, and you have to become attentive to what’s on the ground, to be able to distinguish the play of light, to recognize whether something is a leaf or a mushroom or, if the ground has a little bump to it, whether there could be a mushroom there. So we teach the kids to be attentive to all that, but you don’t sit there and lecture them.

Hh there is nothing quiet about Nezi’s kitchen. In the midst of four chattering parakeets in a cage by the window and the whimpering of Kiki the dog begging for scraps, Nezi’s nine-year-old grandson, RJ, break-dances past the stove. His older sister, Maura, calls out over the onions frying and the coffee brewing that she’ll answer the phone.
