Friends feasting

Doing without is honorable.
Fasting disciplines the soul.
The free are not possessed by things.
Simplicity — so elegant!
Yet thanksgiving calls for
a feast and many friends.
Responsibilities need laughter
just like mashed potatoes
need gravy.


Every Thursday night in winter for ten years, we offered three dozen friends soup. They brought the rest.
