Food: n.; Any nutritious substance that people or animals eat or drink, or that plants absorb, in order to maintain life and growth.
I prefer Merriam-Webster’s take, instead: something that nourishes, sustains, or supplies.
It is true on so many levels. The level of needs is obvious, but above that is that discovery, that craving, that something more than just eating to live–it’s living to eat. It’s appreciating and appeasing an appetite for more than just filling a belly, but the mind and the soul. It’s knowledge and I want it all… eventually.
The fun is in the journey, and though I’ve been on this road for quite some time… the time is nigh that I start writing about it, expressing more than just the mmm’s and ahh’s. Get ready folks… I’m stepping up to the plate!
