Let’s Eat Slop

Once when I visited a farmer’s house, he served me a vegetable dish with miso bean-paste sauce cooked in clamshells – a style called kaiyaki in this part of the country – and fish.  While he drank sake over his meal, he said to me in thick dialect, “You might wonder what could be interesting about living in a hovel like this and eating slop like this.  Well, I tell you, it’s interesting just to be alive.”

from Something Like an Autobiography by Akira Kurosawa
