Hi Everyone,

I wanted to share this excerpt from a Pablo Neruda poem that was just sent to me that I LOVE:

The Great Tablecloth

Let us sit down to eat w/ all those who haven't eaten; let us spread great tablecloths, put salt in the lakes of the world, set up planetary bakeries, tables w/ strawberries in snow, & a plate like the moon itself from which we can all eat.
For now I ask no more than the justice of eating.

At this time especially with all the suffering in Haiti, this is all I wish for everyone -- to receive the justice of eating.
