Food Offerings

Invisible Black Woman laughs at me for listing Kung Fu Hustle as being one of my favorite movies of all time.I just liked the whole movie - it made me laugh.
There is a scene in the movie where the peasants offer a small bowl of produce to the fighters who had just saved them from destruction.
It is this scene that I am just recently beginning to better understand.

SeeNew says that eating together is a 'comunion of persons' (or something like that).
I do a lot for people and most cannot pay me (or else I refuse payment) but almost all of them bring me food.
Sometimes the local wild game is kind of a rough meal but I appreciate the effort.
It's a blessing when even the poorest of the poor offer someone the best that they have.

Lol, I agree with Desertflower, free food is the best!

The importance of breaking bread together cannot be overstated. What is literally and materially shared in the act of eating together has more to do with "getting along" with others than any other social glue we have and know.

So true CNu!

I'm with CNu on this one. Nothing is more telling than who you feed in your home.
