Dining


I am Thinking about dining and modern culture. Pigs eat, human beings were meant to dine amidst love and appreciation for the spiritual and the physical with one another in an attitude of gratitude. Modern urbanization, industrialization and fragmentation in this commercial fast food world have caused many to quit dining. i remember staying with my friends in Boston and one child was on a nook, another on a laptop, another with headphones on and another watching tv all eating off tv trays. This was a Christian family and losing the meaning and depth of dining. In retrospect i was raised by a good family. i was taught that eating together and the table ware were important and that edicot was more than mores and now i understand breaking bread together. i want to be with a woman who dines and understands the power of a kitchen or dining room table. joe

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
