I just had the most delightful lunch. I took a five minute walk in the sun to check out a Thai restaurant at my boss’s suggestion. I found a table in a sun-puddle, one of the best things in the world…cats are pretty smart. I ordered one of my favorite meals, yellow curry, and sat in my sun-puddle reading a book I am madly in love with. (The Perks of Being a Wallflower, which ironically I’ve devoured primarily alone in public.) I ate my delicious noms that were also so cheap, I love this city; and listened to the waitress telling another table about her favorite Thai holiday. It sounded lovely and I wanted to go.
I had a sudden thought. If you aren’t able to appreciate and savor life’s little pleasures, you could travel the world and experience everything it has to offer – while still being trapped in a personal prison, never truly experiencing a single thing.
