Tasting More


It is said that if one eats less one will taste more. It is written in Tao Te Ching verse 12 that the five colors blind the eyes of men. The five tones deafen their ears and the five flavors vitiate their palates. Sensory overload will well, overload the senses; to the point that we can no longer discern what is good and what is not good. One flower in a vase stands out for its beauty. One flower among fifty others like it, does not.
