Almost fall, almost gone

September 30, 2014 § Leave a comment


I wonder if I love fall so much because its beauty is surpassed by its brevity? Pretty sure there’s a steadfast equation that says: ((x > y) > (x < y)): “x” being that thing you enjoy and “y” being how much time you get with that thing. I think about this a lot – the running out of things. Mostly I think about the necessity of it. How running out of things brings to the forefront what matters. It boils to the surface the effervescent bubbles of joy and sinks the dense kernels of consequence, both perfectly visible.

On a related note, this speech by Alice Waters speaks so eloquently to convenience and subsidies in our food culture, and how it has disrupted our ability to appreciate and know the true cost and delight of food. Well worth the 20 minutes.
