"I was taught from childhood of the sanctity of food. Not a piece of bread could be thrown away without kissing it and raising it to one's eyes as with all things holy"
My mother taught me this too and my husband´s mother taught him the same, so we still kiss our bread before thrown it away
I appreciate very much this teaching that holds a whole philosophy of life and a particular conception of the world which is focused on the sacred importance of everyday things
This simple gesture (full of an amazing innocence and an almost lost wisdom) is, moreover, a way to stay connected to gratitude, kindness and respect
