For some reason, a few days ago, I made an internal decision that I was not going to take anymore pictures of my meals anymore! I had decided that maybe the time had come for me to keep my phone away from the dining table and enjoy and embrace the moment and not worry about the lack of photographic evidence.
That was before my father -in-law placed a bowl of octopus soup in front of me.
I stared at my meal for quite some time, taking in the little tentacles and suckers of the octopus, the cute little beans and chunky vegetables, and before I knew it, I was asking my mother-in-law for her phone so I could take this one picture . Seems I cannot stick to my own rules. Oh well…
I think, well my excuse any, I just wanted to remember the beauty of that afternoon. We had chosen to sit outside in the afternoon sun and bask in the heat. We had had a lovely delicate salad beforehand, I’d been enjoying my wine and when the soup came, I just thought, that’s it, this moment is perfect, I want to remember it forever.
