That's the thing with Mediterraneans
we look for meaning in everything
we wake up with the sunrise and we go to sleep with the moonlight
we search for the taste of the sun in tomatoes
we search for the smell of rain in spices
we expect you to take your shoes off before entering our house; we don't want the dirt of the outside world to enter our home but we won't tell you, we'd rather break our own hearts than to break yours
our mother's communication with us exists of three types of questions
where are you coming from?
who did you go with?
was their house clean?
we all have that one uncle who washes away his troubles with cologne and never seems to get the length of his pants right
we all have that chubby niece everyone loves to kiss, pinch and hug and that is why she never seems to los
e her weight
we fall in love with everything from cherries to the first sunflower of the season
we love date nights over tea on the seashore
we love current state debates with friends in coffeehouses
we kiss the people we love on the forehead because that is where the magic happens
