Life and death

I read a quote from Anthony Bourdain, that had me wanting to try a new drink.

I thought about my fondness of teaching and helping others that sprang out of a T.A. job I had in college.

I thought,  'what is life about?'

It dawned on me, life is a reflection;   of that which we imbue on each other.

Nothing more.

If we can learn anything before we leave this planet it should be this:
We were made to relate. To share, to lift up.

love.  It is the force behind each and every imbuement.


"But I think the Negroni is the perfect cocktail because it is three liquors that I don’t particularly like. I don’t like Campari, and I don’t like sweet vermouth and I don’t particularly love gin. But you put them together with that little bit of orange rind in a perfect setting… It’s just: It sets you up for dinner, in a way it makes you hungry, sands the edges off the afternoon. In an after dinner, it’s settling. It is both aperitif and digestive. It’s a rare drink that can do that." ~ Anthony Bourdain
