This is what a single grain of salt looks like. It reminds me of a crystal or precious gem. I was thinking about salt. For many people salt is seen as a bad thing – something to be avoided in food. And yes – too much salt can be extremely harmful. But sometimes a pinch of salt in our food makes all the difference between bland and enjoyable. It occurs to me that a realtionship without a pinch of salt might be rather bland. On the other hand, when too much salt is thrown into the mix, only harm can result.
