I was thinking about all of the things I would eat if I didn’t care about what tomorrow brings.
I always think back to one of my favorite movies called “Groundhog Day” with Bill Murray. In that movie he plays a cynical egocentric news reporter who continuously wakes up on the same day, groundhog day, in a little town called Punxsutawney. Repeatedly he goes through that same day until he realizes that no matter what he does or says or who he meets the next day will be a blank to everyone except him. He goes through all different levels of personal change and development.
One scene I love is right after he realizes that no matter what he does he will be the same the next day he decides to live for today! He sits in the cafe and with a cigarette dangling from his lips. While drinking coffee straight out of the coffee pot he stuffs an entire éclair into his mouth and leaves a huge glob of cream on his cheeks. Gluttony at it’s best!
In the meanwhile, I think I will go have another rice cake. Enjoy!
