It’s easy sometimes to succumb to second best. Especially when you haven’t ever had a taste of what the best may be like. It’s like the difference between tasting a standard
‘off-the shelf’ bar of chocolate and then experiencing the sheer confectionary delight of Belgian 70% cocoa solid. We can do the same with our brains, tolerating second-rate articles and conversation until a beautiful written debate comes and gently massages your neurons into a state of prose induced bliss. Suddenly all previous experience pale into dull grey as the light of revelation bursts forth. ‘Can it really be this good? Can coffee be this alive? Can a movie be enriched with so much entertainment? Can cars be this pleasant to drive?’ It’s all about heading to the next level and once you are there not shrinking back. That’s all for now, I’m off to put my feet up with a great magazine and freshly brewed Italian coffee.
