Concerning Bacon

Today I was eating the bacon I'd made for breakfast and was sad that I was working on the last piece. How I would miss you, dear bacon.

And then! I turned to put the plate in the dishwasher and there was yet another piece of bacon I'd forgotten about in the very act of contemplating my current piece of bacon. It was the happiest morning I'd had in some time.

Just as I felt a pang for a mountainous Colorado sky today and looked up to yet enjoy the green leaves on the Ohio trees, may you lose track of your bacon only to find another magically appearing piece. My wish for you is the joy that only pork and deciduous trees can bring.
