Eating Like a Bird
So now that I have had a monster abdominal surgery, spent nine days eating nothing but ice chips, and have been trying to gradually resume what I would consider to be a normal food intake, I realize that there is a lot that you miss when you take food for granted. The ability to taste and savor each bite, while annoying if you are worried that you will slip into nothingness, is a nice way to look at and enjoy food. Small bites well savored are a pleasure that I have rarely indulged in, but circumstances have changed, and now I get to slow down and take notice.
