Baguette

I recently spent the morning outside an artisan bakery in Paris, where the majority of people were filling the role of stereotype by leaving with some baguettes in tow. What struck me was that almost all of those people broke off the end of the bread and ate it leisurely on the walk home. That […]

Life is all about transactions. When I say that, I’m not just talking about buying essentials like red wine and chocolate (though let’s be honest, they’re on the list), I’m really emphasising those transactions we make where the currency is our own time or energy.

Advances in neuroscience suggest that we can be as competent at 60 as we were at 24 years of age. Isn’t that marvellous news?
