English Breakfast in Cornwall

Updated: Sep 13, 2021

Artist's Statement:

In a time of minimalist breakfasts and the rushing about they connote, here is a blast from the past, a gift to the stomach, and a sign pointing away from the frenetic - a full English breakfast, served in a restaurant/hotel in a small town in Cornwall.

Go, eat your bread joyfully

and drink your wine with a merry heart,

for God has already accepted your deeds.

Ecclesiastes 9:7

"When you wake up in the morning, Pooh," said Piglet at last,

"what's the first thing you say to yourself?"

"What's for breakfast?" said Pooh. "What do you say, Piglet?"

"I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?" said Piglet

Pooh nodded thoughtfully.

"It's the same thing," he said.

A.A. Milne

Aragon: "Gentlemen, we do not stop 'til nightfall."

Pippin: "But what about breakfast?"

Aragon: "You've already had it."

Pippin: "We've had one yes, but what about Second Breakfast?"
