My life reminds me of this plate of Indian buffet food from Chai Pani down in Decatur, GA recently.
I designed the plate. Just wanted to slap some highly acclaimed food on it and try it out! It was quite the failure.
Your plate is your current state in life. Everything on there is stuff you put there, it is the image of your life that's presented to the world.
Every one of our plates is amazing and complex. The flavors merge together as we eat our way through to the end! Sometimes it looks and tastes wonderful, and sometimes it's a mess.
