been a while. right. so, just an update on my recent days.
after a hike up a steep but not very high mountain for some exercise and a view, and the pretty strenous way down, i had to surrender to the fact, that i need to train more for my vacation plans. as if i hadn’t really known that before. kind of.
next thing i know, my sinuses block up and are bothering me ever since. nothing permanent, it’s evolving every day. but hey, i do find it debilitating.
anyway, i’ve had a bland new experience in consequence.
and it took me 2 days to figure out that neither my balcony’s fresh mint-leaves, nor the bottled tomato-juice i had bought dutifully to put healthy into my diet, were of low quality. not my cooking of fresh veggies either. nah!!! just had do admit that it all came down to a simple consequence of my body fighting the blocking of regular breathing. turns out, sinusitis can take away the signals to your brain from your tastebuds. heard others complain of it before, first time for me.
phew… all i can say : life is bland without tastebuds in action. food lost most of its interest. i do ponder now, whether this in itself might be an interesting concept or not?!?? to be honest? no, i still am too much of an epicurian person, to find any value in the option of losing interest in and joy through good, spicy and tasty food.
i realized that, when i got really excited during that brief moment today, when i had a slight hint of tomato in the juice and some feeling of chili in the leftovers of the other day. yeeeha. not there yet, ok, as tea tastes like water again. my oh my, i am sooooo looking forward to getting it all back.
to get through time quicker, i’m watering my jalapeños on the window sill, waiting for them to fire up another culinary experience when they and i are ready.
