The heat wave is gripping the Bay Area. Stay cool in triple digit temperatures - eat cold sorrel soup.
I love cherries, especially the sweet ones. The tart cherries are too… for the lack of better word… tart.
I used to wolf down a pound of sweet cherries in five minutes, missing most of the delicious flavors of these fruits. I don’t do it anymore. I eat them mindfully to get the best ROI.
Here’s a challenge: try to enjoy a cup of sweet cherries (~ 20 fruits) for ~11 minutes. To succeed, chew each cherry about 30 times.
Slow mindful eating will reward you with the whole gamut of juicy cherry flavors.
I spent some time roaming the halls of Löwenbräu-Kunst. Löwenbräu-Kunst was a historic brewery in Zurich’s industrial area closed down in the mid 1980s. It has become home to art galleries.
Here’s one of the art installations, Three Brooms (Mops), which got me thinking: What’s the deep, existential meaning of it?
Is it what Keith Richards thinks, “I mean, give me a guitar, give me a piano, give me a broom and string, I wouldn't get bored anywhere”?
Or, maybe it is the statement by Mahatma Gandhi, “Confession of errors is like a broom, which sweeps away the dirt and leaves the surface brighter and clearer. I feel stronger for confession”?
Indisputably, the Gandhi’s thought is profound, but I am with Keith on that one – “What a drag it is getting old”.
