Out in the sun they slave away
While we devotin’
Full time to floatin’
Under the sea”

Habits of Hunger

“The Italians and Spanish, the Chinese and Vietnamese, see food as part of a larger, more essential and pleasurable part of daily life. Not as an experience to be collected or bragged about–or as a ritual like filling up a car–but as something else that gives pleasure, like sex or music, or a good nap in the afternoon.” – anthony.bourdain

I see you as a human being” – trevor.noah

Having Enjoyment, Existing in the Park

“I am having enjoyment. And I made a promise to myself that I would not consider enjoyment a sin. I take a pleasure into inquiring into things. I’ve never been content to pass a stone without looking under it. And it is a black disappointment to me that I can never see the far side of the moon” – john.steinbeck

Stopping for Coffee

“I have measured out my life with coffee spoons;
I know the voices dying with a dying fall
Beneath the music from a farther room.
So how should I presume?”
