At my dinner table we were American, Chinese, El Salvadoran, Swedish, German and Polish. Our similarities were more shared than our differences. Maybe we were born in different lands, but we were all of the planet Earth. We were joyful to be dining at my table celebrating Persian New Year that particular evening by way of my cuisine.
In spite of the news of wars and political candidates with their empty promises,and our collective heartbreaks, we gathered as Human Beings.
Human Beings of this miraculous Planet Earth, connected by our shared stories, our laughter and savouring "The Now". It was simply a joyful evening at my dinner table, a celebration of life.
