On a recent announcement for a one-day cooking school, Katy Onda wrote that she would introduce a British menu suitable for the summer.

Her menu included curry with jasmine rice, pickled vegetables and eggs and oatmeal biscuits. She would provide jars, so that participants could carry their pickles home. The cooking class provides one aspect of Onda's outlook, that "life is interesting and exciting." She means everybody's average life, to make of it what you will.

She has always been sprightly, enjoying the life around her and her part in it. It took her some time, but when she set herself up as a total life coordinator, she realized she had received her mission.
