Connect with those who plant and cultivate the seeds
and create the orchards and farms and factories,
and design recipes,
and cook, and harvest the food
that allow us to be nurtured,
and be grateful.
Feel the support from your body
that appreciates the sensation of smelling, seeing, tasting, hearing,
touching, eating, ingesting, metabolizing, and eliminating what we don’t need.
And be grateful.
We are a part of this divine gift that feeds
and sustains us: the earth, the rain, the sun, the field,
the tree, the vine, the branch, the limb,
the growth, the gift
from the earth, the sky, the Universe,
and the beings whose work brought nourishment
to our table.
