“ In Japanese, the word #kodawari roughly means “a sincere, unwavering focus on what you’re doing, with a goal of making it perfect, while simultaneously knowing that perfection is impossible and that the work itself is most crucial.” It’s often used as a means of flattery to describe the sort of individual who spends a lifetime devoted to his or her craft. Without slathering on too much pressure here, we’d like to gently posit that such attention ought to be paid to the ritual of brewing coffee at home.”

What a story
This was so funny. I ran into this Mexican couple on a trail in Central Park, and they were lugging around all these balloons. I asked what the balloons were for, and the guy told me that he’d brought them all the way from Mexico. He said he’d concocted this elaborate plan, where he’d given balloons to different people around the city (starting with the hotel concierge), and sent the girl on a scavenger hunt to find them.
"Just because?" I asked.
"Just because," he said.
When I got home, I had an email. It said:
I couldn’t tell you, but I was about to ask her to marry me.
She said yes!
“ To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, draw closer, to find each other and to feel. That is the purpose of life.”
(fantastic, beautiful, heartbreaking movie!)
