This morning i picked and ate the first ripe cherry tomato in my garden. Oh, my. It tastes like a tomato! Twenty minutes later, the flavor lingers in the back of my mouth. Real tomatoes at last. So much better than supermarket tomatoes. Even better than locally grown hothouse tomatoes.
Taste the real thing: Calm.
Close your eyes and meditate for a minute right now. Breathe. Taste the calm. Notice that you are alive. Watch tiny shards of anxiety creep in. Notice opening your eyes to look at the computer screen. Breathe. You are alive. And peace is in the room, right beside you.
