Art of Enjoying ---

The hunger of the soul meets 
the fullness of creation in the dining room; 
The transformative fire of the kitchen 
becomes the fire of digestion. 
Hunger motives our thoughts, words, and actions. 
 We hunger for love, happiness, food,
and numerous other things. 
 The dining room offers the soul a seat 
where these inner cravings 
can receive nourishment.  
 "The seat of the soul is there where the inner and the outer worlds meet," 
Novalis, 18th German poet.

  3. You have peeled back Novalis...
    You have brought his words full circle...adding beauty of imagery and your pen to entreat us to linger with you...to feed and be nourished.
    Ah, Life is a banquet:)

    Glorious day Joanny! and many blessings :)
