No question looms larger

No question looms larger on a daily basis for many of us than

“What’s for lunch?”

and, when that has been resolved,

“What’s for dinner?”

  10. Some days I get so tired of thinking about food. My binge eating disorder spins food into a tornado of panic, urgency and exhaustion. I’m so grateful for the medication that dulls all that and allows it to slide, for a time, into background noise.

    I gaze at the image of abundance and I think of your “Running With Pus” post and that image and the descriptions of the homeless people along your journey and I wonder if they will even have one square meal, today or tomorrow under the South Beach sun?
    Not meaning to be a drag, the photo just evoked a contrast between your posts…

  13. Yo. Chris and I have been talking about this lately while visiting a city for the first time together in a long while. So. Many. People. All eating 3 meals a day, all piling up the rubbish. Gosh, humans are wicked consumers.
