Why Bread?

Why not cupcakes? Why not cakes or biscotti or scones or muffins?
Why bread?
It's so ordinary. Somewhat limited, eschewing fruits and nuts, icing, confectioner's sugar. 

Bread isn't pretty in a decorated way.
It is appreciated from the inside out.
Looks matter, undeniably, but taste counts more.
Craggy, brown, unplanned designs are beautiful.
Surprises are welcome (sometimes).

Starters, even doughs, improve with age.
Totally obvious metaphor.

We cannot live by bread alone, but we need the bread.
Why not make something ordinary special?
Why not see the special in something so ordinary?

My rationalizations for bread journey.

Now isn't this a pretty bread?
