The daily grind can be downright frustrating, annoying, and discouraging.
There’s a threshold for tolerating such nonsense. Listening to others’ word vomit. Inching through traffic moving no faster than a slimy snail. Doing thankless jobs and tasks. Then, it becomes too much.
Yet, many of those irritations remain unavoidable. We have to put up with them.
On my good days or in my good moments, I weave in delight by doing little things.
Taking some time to observe what’s around me and enjoy what’s there is one example.
I was running late yesterday, but I paused to enjoy this flower. Actually, it was more than a momentary stop. Someone lent me a camera with a macro lens. I couldn’t resist. I don’t have the images, yet. But, drinking in the beauty and playing with a macro lens made me giddy with excitement.
Food is another instance. I can’t eat just to get eating done. Well, I can, but that’s not preferable.
I prefer food that is filled with mouth-watering deliciousness, exquisiteness and beauty.
So, for breakfast this morning, I created this dish: seared salmon over porridge, with shiitake mushrooms (a favorite) and Nicoise olives to further tease the taste buds.

It was so good, and it brightened the start of my day.
What do you do to make life delicious, one bite at a time?
I’ve shared two things.
Now it’s your turn.
