Though it looks white, this amanita mushroom used to be yellow-orange before losing its color to the sun.

Went swimming in the river today below the falls. Back in Toronto now listening to the traffic. Seven floors up and always sounds so close. City looks the same but different. Strangely familiar.

The central problem isn’t choosing a path, it’s that there is no path, not in any real sense. There are options and opportunities and decisions spinning off risks and opportunity costs, confusing us with sunk costs and pot odds. It’s a continuous process, in effect every moment of our days and nights. What might look like a fork in the road with two paths is really a manifestation of our lack of imagination, or our need to discard information in order to prevent paralysis. There’s just too much to consider, and if we fail to narrow our focus we end up like Esther in The Bell Jar, starving to death under a fig tree, unable to decide on the juiciest fruit.

It’s breakfast time. Toronto has thousands of restaurants that serve an incredible variety of food. Before 11am though the choices are miserably slim.
