I Want to be a Romantic Fool

In an interview for First We Feast Anthony Bourdain, reminiscing about his journey thus far, dropped this line:

In order to write well about food you need to eat well, and you cannot eat well if you’re analyzing the food. … I want to be lost in the meal. I want to be a romantic fool.

(Emphasis is my own.)

As I get older, more of my feeble personality is arguing to get lost-in-things more often. Romanticism has a truly inspiring and uplifting quality that perhaps isn't in vogue these days. Finding small moments or pleasures to invest yourself into is a worthwhile pursuit.

I mean, why shouldn't the sun rise just for me?
