When strawberries aren’t special

I, like many people have ideas and thoughts that pop into my head. 

I have decided to write down (the ones that are publishable and legal), so I don’t forget them and they may be of assistance to you.

When I was young, I remember the expectation and excitement in May/June at the arrival of strawberries into my diet. Depending on your age this will or won’t make sense, but back in the ’70s, strawberries were only available for a short season in the UK. They were unique and delicious. Today you can get them 365 days a year.

So what happens when things that used to be treat become the norm? When there isn’t the excitement of waiting for the arrival of a time of year or a day in the week (Friday night chippy tea)? Does this make life better or not?

Assuming that my psychological and security needs are met (Maslow) then the model says I should focus on belonging and self-esteem how much of this today is about having more/better stuff or more and more irrelevant stuff.

I remember Thursday night used to be the big shop and meant there were chocolate biscuits. By Saturday, there were none until the following Thursday.

Is my world more vibrant when I can have them every night of the week?
