I was just responding to some comments, and I came across a remark from Jack about PX beer. Which reminded me of this song, which I gather is Leadbelly, but the version I know is Pete Seeger. I love this song because it has a flavour of the school-dinner experience about it, but also, perhaps a broader recognition of how my life has felt like in some ways.
I don’t really make much link between my eating and how my life has been like thus far in terms of ups and downs, and the feeling of it, but perhaps that’s a mistake. I wonder what anyone else thinks – has your eating had an impact on your happiness, your success in life, your self-esteem, in either direction? Or do you feel all these things have some common cause with the eating thing? Or is the eating unrelated to everything else in your life?
