This food is made:
FROM LOVE: from the love of all creatures, the infinitely peaceful and wonderfully precious love that is all around us; from the love & death of plants and animals.
WITH LOVE: with the loving hands of the cooks
THROUGH LOVE: through the loving connections between all things, the enchanted cross-pollinations and flows happening all the time
AMONG LOVE: among the loving friends that share this meal on this beautiful day we are given as a blessed gift
TO LOVE: to love, to be loved, to be recognized in its unique flavors and beauty, to be cherished and held and consumed with gratitude
FOR LOVE: for cultivating love, so that we may sustain ourselves, for our loved ones, for the love between us and the living earth, for the love lineages we are each a part of, and for the benefit of all beings
