Gratitude

I am grateful for those moments when eating mixed nuts when you come across a macadamia. I’m not exaggerating when I say that it makes the whole burden of human existence seem worth it.

It’s not at all as good when eating from a jar that contains only macadamia nuts. Mixed nuts offer the thrill of the hunt, and the potential of a gift from blind luck, and its conspiracy with all of the forces in the universe itself.

I truly believe that finding a macadamia is an encounter with the divine in this life.
