Not a time for celebrations, as we publish final World Cup of Food from Spain

I was looking forward to this moment – to publish the last of (more than) 32 epic recipes in pictures cooked by epic chefs Juan José and Cristy, with the final country recipe from Spain.

But it’s not possible to celebrate on yet another day of mourning for humanity, with acts of war and violence producing thousands more grieving family and friends as countless lives are destroyed by needless death and pain.

There is no adequate response, but Bob Dylan’s song has come to my mind:

How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man?
How many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?
Yes, how many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they’re forever banned?
The answer my friend is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind.

Yes, how many years can a mountain exist
Before it’s washed to the sea?
Yes, how many years can some people exist
Before they’re allowed to be free?
Yes, how many times can a man turn his head
Pretending he just doesn’t see?
The answer my friend is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind.

Yes, how many times must a man look up
Before he can really see the sky?
Yes, how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
Yes, how many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died?
The answer my friend is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind.
