You learn much about a city and yourself when you see its art collection. A good museum will fill your chest up until it feels as though your heart could explode.
And apply moisturizer with sunscreen. Nice skin will be important to you someday.
Asparagus Wrapped in Bacon.
Cut the hard bottom off the stalks of a bunch of asparagus.
Wrap four pieces of asparagus in one piece of bacon and secure with a toothpick that has been soaked in water. Repeat with remaining asparagus.
Sprinkle generously with coarse salt.
Grill over medium heat until the bacon is crispy and the asparagus browned.
Or any man’s for that matter; set high expectations.
Your heart is a great river after a long spell of rain, spilling over its banks. All signposts that once stood on the ground are gone, inundated and carried away by that rush of water. And still the rain beats down on the surface of the river. Every time you see a flood like that on the news you tell yourself: That’s it. That’s my heart.
Kafka on the Shore, Haruki Murakami
This has served your mother and grandmothers well for generations and seems a fitting place to start.
