Dear Mr. Zevon,
You are probably very busy up there in heaven and cannot get to your mail. That’s okay. I need you way more than you need me.
In the effort to enjoy every sandwich, as instructed by you and by anyone sane, and as understood by me intellectually, I am starting a gratefulness/happiness/joyfulness/life-affirming/allrightalready journal. Now. And addressing it to you as the originator of the enjoy-every-sandwich perspective.
For today: A little time to read the Times magazine’s food issue. Did you happen to see those amazing pictures by Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari?
Your devoted fan,
