Maybe today?...

By Vichara

This could be the moment of change. This could be the day of revelation. This could be the time that one epiphany you have been waiting for makes it’s appearance. All of the events, thoughts, feelings and experiences could gather together, stand up in front of you and smile. Are you ready? They’re ready for you. Open your heart and let them be a force of good change and cat as a catalyst for a more fulfilling life.

umami • \oo-MAH-mee\ • noun
: a taste sensation that is meaty or savory and is produced by several amino acids and nucleotides (as glutamate and aspartate)

Example Sentence:

Did you know?
A Japanese scientist was the first to discover the savory taste of the amino acid glutamic acid, which was found to occur in soup stocks made with seaweed. This fifth basic taste -- alongside sweet, sour, salty, and bitter -- was named "umami," meaning "savoriness" in Japanese. Umami can be experienced in foods such as mushrooms, anchovies, and mature cheeses, as well as in foods enhanced with monosodium glutamate, or MSG, a sodium salt derived from glutamic acid.
