Today I love sushi because for me it represents adventure. I love that I was well over 50 when I first tried sushi, and that it proved to me that there were still adventures left for me to experience and I have embraced that and intend to continue to dash forward madly into the face of any new and exciting exploit that presents itself. I love that I have grown to realize that the only quality something needs to be deemed an adventure is that it provides a new experience and that the rest is up to me. I love that my part of any adventure is to pay attention and go forward with an open mind and an open heart. I love that today I am heading out for sushi and although it is something that I’ve now done often it still reminds me that my new life is a life of adventurous dares and escapades. I love that I have been on many new cuisine adventures such as dim sum and sushi, and that I’ve engaged in a few as part of the instigation of adventure by cooking up some things that are foreign to my upbringing in that we never had them when I was growing up, but that also in a way fit into my upbringing because I was raised to open myself up to experience and though I didn’t embrace that wholeheartedly until later in life, I’m here now and I’m loving it.
Today I love that this spring snowfall of perfect white is still covering our world here in my little city and the fresh look and the fresh taste of the air is welcomed by me to stay for a while. I love that I am looking forward to the thawing of it all and the warmth that will be here soon enough, but since it hasn’t arrived yet I will revel in this cleansing purge of brown and grime and grit and stain. I love that I was just out for a walk and the air was brisk and cool and sweet and my lungs are thanking me for that jolt of energizing air.
Today I love weekend breakfasts. I love planes to watch old black and white movies. I love the library. I love BBC shows that were well made from vintage and brilliant literature like that of P.G.Wodehouse. I love reading good science fiction. I love that I hate reading bad science fiction but I can’t not read it if it started out good ’cause I’m afraid it might recover and I’d miss that if I quit. I love that usually once it goes bad it doesn’t recover and I get so angry with myself for finishing it but I get more angry at the knowledge that I’ll do it again and that makes me laugh at myself.
Today I love drinking coffee and contemplating black and white movies and sushi dinners.
