Parisian Epiphony

In America I have to be proactive in order to feel peace. In other words I work my ass off around the clock, waking up with an alarm and not enough sleep, constantly improving my crumbling life, straining to get slightly ahead so that I can save up enough money to buy free time and niceties to temporarily soothe my stressed soul.

My friend Oba is currently visiting Paris and writes, “It’s wild how there’s so much time for leisure drinking and conversation.”

In the States, it’s the exception to see a couple or group relaxing and enjoying each other’s company over a meal or beverage, even in a vacation town like Key West. Of course vacation is a stressful time when you only get two weeks/orbit.
