…which are the most beautiful examples of one of my favourite addictions; maybe yours too. I don’t just admire the skill that it takes to make or photograph these creations, I get a visceral reaction. Just based on the visual, my other senses “know” what it would be like to experience these yummies live. The core of my body seems to fly into the computer screen in an effort to possess them…it is, in fact, a physical need….must have it…my precious!
This could be me one day. It could happen.
And isn’t that the crux of addiction? It’s a place of temporary refuge from what we fear; something that may feel so much like a solution, in the moment, to the pain that we might end up sacrificing anything to get it and, so, it becomes a problem in itself?
