Aw, Monday. Good-bye weekend!
When I was traveling in Spain last summer, I had the succinct pleasure of a beach-side conversation with a young local about philosophy, and what happiness is. This young lifeguard was studying this trade in San Sebastian (see photo to the right–tough place to study), and had some well-versed insights. However, what his definition came to, after all the Nietzsche, Descartes, and Thoreau was read, was this: sitting by the river with someone you love, having a beer, and eating tapas.
Since tapas are a little more difficult without bread… INSPIRATION! Sesmark Rice Crackers are the best, by far. (My “someone I love” actually ended up eating these instead of the bread he had.) Pair with some lactose-light aged/goat cheese, some chicken liver mousse, small fruits, and a GF beer, and you’ve got yourself happiness. If only for the moment.
