Synopsis >

In Chapter 12 of 16 in her 2012 interview, author and food writer Cathy Erway shares how Thoreau's Words 'None can be an impartial or wise observer of human life from the vantage point of what we should call 'voluntary poverty' ' inspired her work. These words, from Thoreau's 'Walden', inspire Erway to put herself in a place to see things from another person's shoes, which opens a creative channel that becomes her blog and, progressively, her healthy food advocacy platform.
