This movie is amazing on so many levels. First watched Chef because of the all start cast and to see some food porn but came away with a new appreciation for the connection we have with food, the connection it creates with everyone around us and the connection I seek. A food truck dream is not that farfetched if there is passion behind it. Will I ever get there? Who knows but I sure want to try.
I want to go to there. You will be mine, Croatia. Oh yes, you will be mine.
Nothing will keep us apart. Not even the zombie apocalypse.
I had a dream last night…
This year is my year of travel. I’ve been presented with an opportunity to explore without financial limits. The phrase “the world is your oyster” has never rang more true to me than it has today. A dear friend has given me the golden ticket. Carte blanche. The magic lamp. I am officially on my friend’s United Airlines fly list…
I really can’t describe how I feel but instantly San Francisco seems small to me. The once main attraction is now second fiddle to the world that I have yet to explore. Without monetary barriers, what excuses do I have? I am 29. I am single. I have a flexible job. What excuse do I have besides bad excuses like indecisiveness, fear or being “too busy”.
My destination is to be determined but my will has been determined. My passport is renewed. My backpack is ready. I will see you world, show me everything I’ve been missing.
Another birthday passes bringing me a year away from the big three zero is cause for reflection. Reflecting with the hope that being a year older has made me a year wiser. A year smarter. A year kinder. A year more courageous. Aging without progression is like the mac without the cheese, it needs to come hand and hand.
I guess I will realize these evolutions in my persona in my actions of 29 year old Jeff. Will I learn from 28? Will I make the same mistakes? Will I take the risks 28 year Jeff was unwilling to?
It all remains to be seen but all I hope is that I progress as a friend, a brother and a son. A human being. Don’t let this be a year of mac without the cheese.
Open Bar + Photobooth = Magic
Aspire to do whatever makes you this excited.
