Easy Breakfast

One of the sugar containers at Easy.

On the way to set, Peter (the other playback technician) and I stopped into a breakfast place called Easy located on Queen street west near Roncesvalles (south east corner). As an aside, Easy is an amazing little breakfast place. If you're in the neighborhood go. On each table along with the salt and pepper shakers and maybe a bottle of ketcup there was a suger container with a blurb. Each table had a different blurb as far as well could tell. We only checked about three of them so if you go there and you find some blurbs that repeat... well you've got too much spare time on your hands.

The blurb, which might be a little hard to read, in the photo says "The contemplative life is often miserable. You should do more, think less and not watch yourself living.". Followed by the guy that who said those words, a Nicholas-Sebastien Chamfort.

People tell me this all the time. It's odd that the words really didn't sink in until I read it on a sugar container.

Let's debate.

Obviously there has to be some middle ground that's ideal. Is that a libra answer or what?

You don't want to keep repeating your mistakes from the past but at the same time you don't want to put up roadblocks keeping you from trying something different.

I'd have to lean more to the "don't think just do" statement. Throw caution into the wind. I'm contemplative enough.

Can one do and think simultaneously?
