mornings and toast bread

June 18, 2008

It has been such a delight to see people enjoying lurveBite’s Toast Bread for your mouth over the last few days.  Above is a photo Jasmine made this morning while visiting me at the miaSofia skybox.   She is happily nibbling on the Heart Shape Toast, and the small green bird in the corner is pecking at a new toast named I Lurve Toast.  I am wearing a cute girl head, a new group gift from BP*, and my bread necklace from Hanauta.  So anyway, Jasmine and I had breakfast today and spent the morning chatting about girl stuff.   😀

Then I was so delighted to read a follow up post to Torley’s blog post about our beloved and very entertaining flickr group “the cult of toast“.   He refers to my comment about the joy of sharing a meal with friends and family and how it’s reflected in sharing toast in world.  The importance of a meal, be it with just one other person or your entire family, is something new to me.

Meal time is time you spend nurturing each other through the sharing of food, the partaking of bread, which is physical.  But, it’s also a time you spend reconnecting with each other by taking time to talk and pray together, which is at a more emotional or spiritual level.  Maybe it’s that emotional connection that comes across when you and a friend are happily nibbling on toast in world.   Maybe, maybe not, but I know that having toast bread in your mouth is just fun.  Try it, you may just find yourself smiling.

    This article may have well just moved mountains for me. Life goes so fast most of the time that people forget the importance of what dinner time is. You are so right about it being more then just eating, but a time to reconnect. Thank you for this.

    Thank you so much for your comment. I agree that people forget the importance of the little things, or things that seem so common and mundane. We live in a very fast paced world and are always busy with seemingly important tasks. However, we do need to stop from time to time and simply reconnect. Enjoy sharing food in real life and second.
