Eating = Life

"One of the very nicest things about life is that way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating."

Luciano Pavarotti, My Own Story

Have you ever considered that one of the most fundamental aspects of being human--something we all share--is that we must eat often in order to stay alive. I was thinking: what if God had created us to only have to eat once a month? Or once a year? Our lives would be radically different. No restaurants. Probably no ice cream shops. Eating would not have any pleasure element--it would be strictly utilitarian. I am so thankful that eating is daily. Our food is part of our culture--it represents who we are and distinguishes us from other cultures and traditions.

What would you miss most if you only had to eat once a year? I would definitely say ice cream!
