Connection, Nana Soup and the Cosmos


We all seek it, crave it. When I was much younger, I would get my spoon, dip it into a bowl of soup — preferably my mom’s ‘Nana soup’ — and would try to proportionately match the contents of the spoon to the contents of the bowl. I can’t be the only kid to have done this. Anyhow, I would think about this every now and again and have come to appreciate how a simple meal can so sweetly illustrate the microcosm of the universe, or rather, our need to find a connection to something greater. Every thing is linked — carefully structured energy veiled in material form, existing as a spoonful of soup in reflection of the larger bowl that is the cosmos, if the cosmos could be contained. Damn, I could really go for a bowl of soup.
