I recently learned
that my mother thinks it's distasteful,
all these people always photographing their lunch.
I don't know why she thinks this.
Maybe it goes back
to some ancient Jewish code of conduct.
Maybe she heard someone she admires
saying the same thing.
Maybe she has no good reason to feel this way,
but just does.
I had never given it any thought
until my mom mentioned it.
Now, whenever I find myself photographing my food,
I feel a little ashamed of myself.
