I’ve been following (and yearning to join in on) the One Pot folks for some time. It’s such a simple yet profound idea, and one that should strike a chord with us all as Thanksgiving approaches. “These Table-based travels are at the core of a hunch I’ve had for fifteen years…That hunch – is that The Table – the place where we come together and share food – is one of the most important cultural sites in the modern world…And the second part of the hunch – the common table is in a state of peril…”We don’t eat together anymore. “”
I think we could learn a lot by thinking about our table, who we sit down with, where we sit down. These simple thoughts seem to dissipate as it seems Americans typically think about the holiday as an object vs. thinking about it as an experience to be shared with those interesting folks who surround us.
