food is a social thing, it brings people together, it gives us nutrition, it causes some of us anxiety and others peace.
L'Arche is often centred around the table, around dinner, around food.
it's a simple concept really, since everyone in the house is out and about doing different things so often.
today i really got that.
i was making lunch for Jay, myself and my house leader Marie. Normally we just throw together sandwiches and part ways, but today i was feeling adventurous and made a lovely pasta sauce for us.
i haven't eaten lunch with any of the folks in a long time, since usually that's my only time off in the day, but today i took the time just to sit with him and my wonderful boss Marie.
i couldn't tell you what we talked about, or the silly things Jay said - which he has a tendency to do. but i can tell you i'd forgotten how much I really really love being here.
i'd been feeling so stressed and worn thin, but this meal made it up. i remember why i'm back.
and i'm back.
hopefully i'll be able to enlighten you again soon with the silly stories of my life here. i'd been a little lost, but some pasta fixed that.
get ready, life is crazy.
