People and food. What matters most.

Roger Ebert shared a very heartfelt update with the public this week. It inspired me to think differently about the new year and new year’s resolutions.

After battling cancer and enduring many medical procedures that have taken their toll on him, he misses the human aspect the most.

“What I miss is the society. Lunch and dinner are the two occasions when we most easily meet with friends and family. They’re the first way we experience places far from home. Where we sit to regard the passing parade. How we learn indirectly of other cultures. When we feel good together. Meals are when we get a lot of our talking done — probably most of our recreational talking.”

May we all remember why people AND food are important components of daily living.
