Ev, this is a random post, but I started thinking about a lot of stuff while I was eating lunch, so here ya go. What are your thoughts about eating alone?
I don’t mind it at all. I’ve eaten alone at fine dining restaurants, while traveling, at cafés and bistros, at bars, or at average sit-down restaurants. I never thought anything of it. In fact, I kind of like it. But, there are a lot of people who abhor dining alone, and this fascinates me. What do you think they are afraid of? Is it embarrassing? Lonely? Boring?
I’m eating my kale salad and lemon chicken – alone – and appreciating the break of silence in my busy day. I hope those people get to experience that kind of peaceful solo eating someday, too. Don’t you?
Anyway, I saw a bunch of tulips and it got me thinking about Valentine’s Day and people and relationships and my friend who lost his job and impermanence and then…well…eating lunch. So that’s how we got here. Haha! Minds are silly things. Love you.
