Today, I tuned in to watch the food channel.

This is the first time I am willingly going to the food channel, without being forced by some friends in my life.

I tuned in because of a story I recently heard of a man who passed on due to stomach cancer. He was unable to eat for 3 weeks before his death. He loved to watch news channels, but with his situation getting worse, he switched to the food channel for his final days. He could not eat, but he enjoyed watching some of the most exquisite cuisines being made.

In my wildest dreams, I could not have guess the food channel had such a use case, but the story showed me again how limited we are, when we think our interpretation of things is the only truth.

I watched the food channel today, to appreciate what he felt. To see the beauty in each frame.

I am thankful for the power of stories, and how they shape perspectives.
