funnily enough, we were having "dinner" at a raw vegan place the other night. it's a block away, musician friends play there often so we do go a few times per month and tbh, the salads are delicious. the owner prefers to hire vegetarians and everybody that works there is pale and sickly thin with very dry hair.

i think arrogance is a much greater factor than asceticism.
somebody being thin is no indication of health. i was a twig as a vegetarian but constantly sick.

As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
