Breakfast for the soul.
Recently a friend, and faithful reader, and on the ground reporter, and a person who should probably consider writing a guest post sent me this picture. It was her breakfast, and it had formed into the Yin Yang symbol. She was curious to know why this had happened and if it held any significance. Since, diving into the difficult, where angels fear to tread, we agreed to find out. Turns out that Eastern Philosophy and symbolism is very difficult, and easy to misinterpret, but hey, that never bothered us before, right?
Yin Yang represents the forces of life held in balance. Good, evil, life death, whites, yolks, toast, butter, bacons, eggs (we are still trying to balance the marmalade with something, we knew this was not going to be easy). Obviously, this is a very good sign for our friend, reporter, and an amazingly talented and artistic chef, in her own right.
We asked several experts in Eastern Philosophy, and they all said the same thing, "c'mon, you're not trying to convince that me she was actually up in time for breakfast, seriously. What kind of fool do you take me for?"

There is not much to say, but, for those who find any offense, please remember these are only stories, jokes, and have no relation to reality. Kind of like life.
I like life, and hope it lasts a long time, but it does require some explanation, that is why these blogs exist. To help people navigate times and events that make no sense.
Here are a few places you can find a few things.
The Original Life Explained. Where it all started, a little rambling and a lot of nothing important.
Life Explains The End Views on humanity's race to self extinction. I hope I am wrong.
Life Explains Smiles Because everybody likes it when you smile.
Life Explains Aging Getting older is not always easier, but it is worth the effort. And a few small things can make it much more pleasant.
Life Explains Traveling and Commuting Mostly commuting. Driving bugs me and working bugs me so driving to work is the ultimate insult of modern life, and I like to complain.
Life Explained Explores History. The real problem with history is there is so much of it. It is all over the place. But, if you take the time to look at the small pieces it is fascinating.
Life Explains Music Music is a universal language. I like guitar based rock and roll, but there is a little bit of a lot here.
