Fighting for your food
The last couple of days I've discovered pistachios again . I find it amazing that somehow in this mixed up world, I forgot all about them.
Sonja introduced them to me in Paris, while we waited outside the Moulin Rouge in the rain. She was my first and only tour leader crush - a truly amazing woman.
I love how you get to pry open those sturdy shells, especially those buggers that resist. You find the small crack with your tongue and align your tooth just so. The shell parts under the resolve and voila! … well it's on to the next shell actually.
I always appreciate the things I have to work harder to get. There is no better feeling in the world than knowing you deserve what you have sitting right in front of you.
The trick, I guess, is knowing how hard you have to work for the next great thing in your life.
