Those who know me, know I have an incredible affinity for the table. In whatever way it comes, fancy or plasticware. I love the idea of pulling up a chair to stay a while. Time seems to stop for a little. I absolutely love to host, to invite. Everyone comes with a need to be fed, and a lot more happens there than just the physical. It meets needs we didn't even know we had. No prerequisites for the table, except to come, hungry... and that is a beautiful thing.
