Expensive is Relative
Now that I type this, hmm. I was complaining about the cost of my Kettle Jalapeno Chips. Z says she doesn't want to hear it, that I quote the price of everything. That I do. Not because I'm cheap (I am thrifty), but because I am amazed at the increase. So, some things balance out. I paid more from the Triple Sec, but way less for the veggies. I wanted chocolate, but couldn't find anything I really liked. The poor choice I made in March is still on the counter. I ate one square and closed it back. Even desperate times won't make that palatable.
Back in there somewhere is a pomegranate. I used to buy them for Z when she was a child. Yoga To The People, later. Dinner some place fun. I will cook while she is in class tomorrow. Golden Gate Park or Dolores Park, Rainbow Grocery, Jump'n Java, Oakland, Berkeley, and surely, and Ethiopian dinner with friends.
Back to the subject - living well is the fullness of experience. We each find what we enjoy and go for it. Every thing has a cost. If we are happy to pay and love what we get, it's worth it. Expense is debatable when it comes to living our joy.
Back in the city...
