(wiki) who lurked there, I will compare the salt to a good dash of realism.
What's honey-roasted without nuts? Sweet without sour? A dash of salt keeps flavor on an even keel, just as a dash of realism keeps an optimistic scale in balance.
Do you dare to call yourself an optimist now that your've been practicing for months? Now that there's been no sign of the devil on your shoulder for days, if not weeks? Try it. Shout it! Even whispering it is okay.
