The Family Meal Is What Counts, TV on or Off – New York Times

The Family Meal Is What Counts, TV on or Off – New York Times

Long live the family dinner. We had one tonight…where we all sat down at the same time and talked about our days. What a great half-hour! Might even try to do it a few times per week.

Eating and talking is one of the ways we bond with each other. Eating in front of others creates intimate space because it lowers our guard and makes us more authentic (can’t hide that you are actually human and have needs while eating). I wonder how differnt the world would be if we all had to share a meal with each person we come in contact with (grocery store, drycleaner, etc.)

Just a some food for thought.
