[Nevat]( bin/article.cgi?file=/chronicle/archive/2004/06/24/WIGGN7AF341.DTL&type=wine), a Spanish goats' milk cheese that has the body of a brie but the lightness of a chevre. [Cabrales]( rural/40568/40891/0/queso-de-cabrales-en-el-concejo-de-cabrales/index.html), the best blue cheese in the world after true Roquefort. No bread, no crackers. Just a fork.

A glass of white port.

And, last but not least, two ripe, fresh green figs.

Sometimes, life is good.
