So many possibilities! This is my favorite moment in a trip calculation. To where? To when? And most importantly, what was cooking when I plan to arrive?
My copy of The Temporal Atlas helps immensely with organizing my thoughts. More later on this prodigious book!
At the moment, I must finish my voyage parameter calculations for my upcoming trip. I have chosen a very specific night to travel to and it is imperative that the voyage’s variable boundaries are precisely aligned before I leave…
Although I try to remain as true to the original recipes as possible, adapting them for a present-day cook may involve substitutions, merely because some components listed are either poisonous or simply unobtainable today.
Sadly, my experiments with bringing back with me some of these ingredients to the present day have failed and resulted in more than a few small explosions; minor flare-ups, I assure you.
Every journey has to start sometime and it just so happens that I choose now. You see, I am a Temporalnaut, a time tourist if you will. Our worlds are nearly identical, although where I come from, time travel is common and legend is real. Time exists all at once and the boundary between reality and fantasy may merge.
I will endeavor to bring back, with my trusty equipment, photographs and reflections of my temporal travels. So you, the arm chair foodie time traveler, join me and enjoy the trip.
