cherished memories

"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"


Attia Hosain


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


Annotation: I´m developing a 365 project which includes not only a daily photo, but also a daily post in my blog. This is the number 211. If you want to see all the photos:
