Self Edge’s Jean Finder is pretty awesome.
There is in every community something that has to remain unsaid, unnamed, unuttered; and you signal your belonging to that community precisely by participating in the general silence. Revealing everything, “telling all,” is a foreigner’s job.
— Costica Bradatan

It is not only worlds that can collapse and be rebuilt, but also selves. Selves can be re-made from scratch, reassembled and refurbished. For they, too, are stories to be told in different ways.

"The Beauty In All is about the flaws & mistakes that give life its character and worth - how even ignorance can give light to knowledge. For me, not knowing how to do something & still trying is a process that helped my production style evolve. If everything we are is out in perfect tutorials, we might never deviate from the teacher. This record is dedicated to imperfection and the sense of pride & accomplishment we get from our struggles. Hopefully, you listen to this record, reflect on the ups & downs of life, and see the beauty in all.

Time: 30 minutes

2 heads romaine lettuce

2 eggs

1/4 cup garlic-flavored oil

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 large lemon, halved

1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan

1 cup garlic-flavored croutons.

1. Wash and dry romaine, discarding outer leaves. Separate remaining leaves, wrap in a clean dish towel and refrigerate. (Leaves may be torn into smaller pieces if desired.)

2. Bring a small pan of water to a boil. Add eggs, and remove from heat. After 1 minute, remove eggs from water, and set aside.

3. Place romaine in a large salad bowl, and assemble all other ingredients on a platter. At the table, pour half the oil over romaine. Toss gently, using rolling motion. Add salt and pepper, and toss again. Squeeze juice of lemon over, and add Worcestershire sauce. Break eggs over salad. Add remaining oil and cheese. Add croutons and toss briefly. Serve at once on large salad plates.

Yield: 4 to 6 servings.
