Apothecary derives from the Ancient Greek word ἀποθήκη (apothḗkē, “a repository, storehouse”) via Latin apotheca (“repository, storehouse, warehouse”), Medieval Latin apothecarius (“storekeeper”), and eventually Old French apotecaire. Providing nourishment for the soul the Soul Food Cafe became an apotheca and I gave myself a number of titles including, purveyor of creative stimuli and artistic midwife.
As a purveyor of creative stimuli, I have resisted the urge to write a book and have maintained ‘storehouses’ on the internet. However, the internet has changed dramatically since I began working on the frontier back in 2000. Now I am thinking that perhaps I do need to put together a book. It may take some time to materialise but I have time as I not so patiently wait for Godot!
