What a fabulous opening into the intention of accompaniment! This kind of satisfying of appetite is of the body and, of course, of the heart.

Calling out and calling in In many ways, our culture has adopted a combination of these images for its own conception of wisdom. The feast The difference between the two is that one has actually prepared a feast for the fool, and the other has not.
