So much consuming going on, especially at this time of year.
We are indeed consumers, and staying alive means that we must consume –everything must eat something, just to exist…
How thankful I am to whatever allows itself to be consumed… I care that we understand the privilege to allow yourself to be a form for sacrifice to survival of something else… Humans are also animals; I rank us no higher… Even viruses and bacteria are doing what they must to extend their populations… This extends to just about every scale, eating, eating, easting –no permanent satiation seems possible… If we eat till we’re “full ” –soon enough we find ourselves “empty” again, and this cycle of consuming –and making waste, since forms that take in potential nutrients, don’t always find them to be nutritious, life-sustaining.
This won’t end; even galaxy will consume galaxy… But on a more personal level, many humans will be hungry –even on Thanksgiving, a celebration about food…
Please take time to remember all,
Tasty right on my wrist! Any time I look at this meal, I nearly bite myself.
