"It is not often given to human beings to be able to treat a fragment of time that can never return again with the intense and ritualistic concentration appropriate to a moment irretrievably slipping away into an everlasting impossibility of repetition."

A Glastonbury Romance.

That's perhaps why smoking is so ritualistic. Cigarettes, Cannabis, DMT. The determined inhalation, the hot smoke tracking the passage of air through mouth and throat and lung, the wilful, Faustian retention of that life-breath, the release, the surrender to the life-imperative that demands the out-breath, and the smoke billowing from the mouth.

It sacralises the breath and the moment.

Makes the breath visible. Smoke is the moment of transition from one element to another. Literal magic.
Even in the absence of any drugs at all, seeing your breath 'smoke' on a cold day is great fun as a little kid. Pretend to smoke, like a cool person in an old film. Pretend to be a dragon.

Sunday roast changed under lockdown, s/r as nevermind foodies just nail the basics. Now it's fun food day. I don't miss being such a self critical gravy snob. That's something so crap to say but was coercively controlled by chef siblings for so long to the point of ok, you want good gravy, check this one out cunt. And that's the game.

Problem is they don't want to cook on their days off, so the trick is to provide sustainable fish and honey trap them with a classic Robuchon mashed spuds. You need to burn those calories, but they're worth it for the fun form of stress.

Prepping meals if you're feeding a few means getting on with it. Good time to run play lists of tune hunts too.
