Taste & Aesthetic

"Less is More."

Gordon Ramsey so instructs many a chef.

I believe this carries over to art as well. Hints of figures or objects, peeping out of the canvas or paper, alluding to the blankness from which it formed. I personally find this to be aesthetically pleasing.

Also in relationships. The less you get, the more you want. Just a taste. To wet your appetite. Just a little nibble. To make you hungry.

You can't have one without the other. As Missie and I discussed over dinner Tuesday night, the inevitable coexistence of love and heartbreak. There has to be a balance, the good and the bad, it is an absolute impossibility to have only one.


My glass is full.
