The Sand & Fortune Cookies
It wouldn’t seem like these two would go together, but in my mind they’re inseparable.
When I travel for work or fun, I’ll seek out a local beach and take a vial of sand for my collection. I mark where and when it’s from so each time I see it, I’m reminded of that trip, the experiences, and the people who made a mark on me.
Similarly, one of my great joys is Chinese food.
I love the authentic restaurants in Chinatown in NYC. Whenever I go somewhere new, if there’s a killer Chinese restaurant, I’ll find it.
My favorite part of the meal is the fortune cookie. I keep a collection of the fortunes, like the sand, from around the world.
There’s just something about them that gives me a warm, fuzzy feeling and brings me back to that meal and the company I shared.
