I really love all types of pie. Sometimes I like a chi chi poo poo French apple tart tatin and sometimes I love a down home apple cobbler. I can always go for a piece of sweet potato pie.

As with pie, my inspiration and enjoyment comes from a mix of opposites: the high and low brow; chic mixed with trashy; urban with a dash of country life. In our efforts to achieve and accrue, we
sometimes forget that the most simple things can bring the most enjoyment. We forget that a little trashiness can sometimes add a bit of spice to our so-called cultured lives. We get so high falutin' sometimes that we forget the quirks and customs that shaped us and brought joy to our lives at one point.

So, you know what, I love French bread, but I will still enjoy my garlic cheese biscuits from Red Lobster. I will go to the theater, but I may just go to a voguing ball afterwards. I will watch the DISCOVERY CHANNEL, but an episode of AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL will always entertain.

Find what you love, what brings you joy, what makes you grow, what makes you laugh and SHAMELESSLY enjoy it. Life is too short to eat someone else's slice of pie.

Wise words. By the way I like a good blackberry cobbler almost as much as I like breathing. Hey thanks for the post to my blog. Here's my e-mail jmckissic/@/ulchatt/net. Just remove the dashes.
