Enjoying food

Keith wrote a really impressing answer(comment) to my last post. But the highest impact had the last paragraph on me:
"When you slow down and pay attention to one thing, you do it much better, and oddly enough, you won't get bored. If you are, then you aren't paying attention. Almost everything is more complicated than first appears."

I guess he's right. Take for example blueberries and gooseberries. The inside is soft and smooth, like jelly and equally sweet. The paring is like a really thin and silky leather from texture and its taste is slightly sour. Combine the sensations and every little berry is amazing. You taste and feel even more when you close your eyes. Try it some evening or morning. Buy fresh berries on your local farmers market or grocery store and than sit down in a quiet moment (no radio or tv) and really taste the berries. It is a fantastic experience.

On Sunday Chris and I took a different route than usual (three and a half hours of biking, taking pictures and simply enjoying Leipzig together) and I fell in love with Leipzig again. That's why there is a new series of pics on my photoblog this week.

Except for that nothing new here.
