This is the power of gathering: it inspires us,
delightfully, to be more hopeful,
more joyful, more thoughtful: in a word, more alive.

The table is a meeting place, a gathering ground, the source
of sustenance and nourishment, festivity, safety, and satisfaction.
A person cooking is a person giving.
Even the simplest food is a gift.

Community – meaning for me ‘nurturing human connection’ — is our survival.
We humans wither outside of community. It isn’t a luxury, a nice thing;
community is essential to our well being.
