On being and becoming
grapes and raisins
Bathtubs are great.
I take really long baths.
Some are so long that I get hungry.
Those are called ‘picnic baths’.
Picnic baths last at least an hour and can be up to two hours long.
On those occasions, I bring dish of raisins to nibble on as I soak.
Sure, some folks like red wine and candles.
Me, I’m into dried grapes and Seinfeld. It’s almost the same thing.
Except in reverse.
The main reason to eat raisins in the tub?
You are what you eat?
You become what you consume.
After two hours in the tub, I leave there as a raisin.
It’s pretty straight forward.
Everything we take in, we integrate. We become it and it becomes us.
