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.
