Food So Good

Last night for dinner I was at Moby Dick, a small sushi restaurant in Wheaton. I was eating alone, contemplating life, and suddenly found myself thinking, "It's sinful how good this food tastes!" I was marveling at my Maryland crab roll. Maybe it was the moment, but it was, it was a awestruck moment for which I am grateful. I was caught up in the act of eating truly wonderful food. It was the crunchiness of the cucumbers against the backdrop of wasabi, perfectly cooked rice, and a slightly salty, sensuous crab filling finished off with sesame seeds. It was a perfect moment.

I love food, but it's rare that I get caught up in it so completely, and I'm very happy that I did. I was delighted.
