    food for thought

    the bible says
    we are made of dust . . .
    our bones, perhaps,
    but our spirits are
    made of the savor
    of sautéed garlic,
    the hope of rising
    dough, the laughter
    of bacon frying,the
    simmer of friendship—
    every morsel of our
    mortality a reminder
    to remember that we
    came from love
    and to love
    we shall return

      I know you are thinking Advent. I am, too. But of the things I am also thinking, your poem brought this to mind. After 36 years of funerals, many for those primarily, lovingly remembered for their cooking and their kitchens, you have given me a better way to let the Commendation envelop both the living and the dead in real time.
      I have had worse thoughts in Advent. Thank you.
