I contemplated having a Tiffany’s moment, coffee in hand staring past the window into reliable comfort.
Then I realized: I am neither elegant enough to pull it off, nor do I have anything to crave that will provide me fulfillment I cannot already obtain.
why would I waste my moment of universal calm on a reflection of opulence, when I could be happy with quite breeze, or a perfectly cooked bowl of rice?
True luxury can’t be bought. Money, power – that will just give you more to worry about. Stop stressing. Take a break.
Enjoy the rice, not the race.
