Breathe in, breathe out and be ready for more

You know how when every once in a great while you have something to eat and it is only perfect, you are hungry for it, and its smell is so seductive that there is no time to bother with accessories like a fork, and the whole world for a moment becomes only you and what you are eating and the taste is a song on your tongue that sends your heart in flight?

It’s hard to eat just anything after that.  It can be hard to get dressed even.

I think the only thing to do for a few days is not to fight it.  Your mind needs time to stamp life moments on your soul.  Have plain noodles with just a spill of the best olive oil you can find and a few sprigs of thyme.  Drink a glass of red wine and just wait til to you’re ready to start again.
