This is especially found to be true when you are going through an incredibly busy day that involves nothing but running around nonstop with few sitting/rest breaks, and that requires much energy from all facets of yourself.
For example, yesterday I had class at 8:30am, followed by taking the bus for 20 minutes and then a 15-min walk downtown to drop by the art gallery I'm interning for, so that I could pick up posters for their upcoming event to hang up around campus. I picked the posters up, ran back the 15-min distance and took another 20-min bus ride to campus, put the posters up in a couple of buildings, and finally sat down in the hallway 20 or so minutes before my modern French history class started.
Now you can imagine that I was exhausted beyond belief, from the running around and such. (Though, it also probably had to do with my lack of sleep or not having eaten much food during the day.)
Anyhow, those last 20 minutes ended up being the most enjoyable 20 minutes of my Thursday...When I took the first bite of a mini French baguette sandwich I had bought on my way back from the art gallery, it seemed as if every single one of my brain cells immediately turned its 'off' switch--all I could think about was how delicious, flavorful, and fulfilling the sandwich was!
In case you're curious, the baguette sandwich had walnut...paste? Wait, was it walnut pesto? I do remember there was bleu cheese in it, that's for sure...Or wait were there strawberries too?
...Yeah, I'm sorry, I can't remember exactly what was in that sandwich; I think that's what happens when you're enjoying a food so much that you start to forget what the components of that food were, as you instead absorb the pleasure that every bite or spoon brings you--the same effect as the composition of melodies, voices and rhythms that blend into what we call a song!
As my attempt to try and make it up to you, I have posted some other food that the bakery, called Dahlia Bakery (it's a must-visit! And I can't say I've ever seen that place not crowded), has been serving, just to bring your eyes as close as they can to visualizing what I ate!
Today's motto: Feast and enjoy!
