To Eat Or Not To Eat

“The trouble with being poor is that it takes up all your time.”

— Willem de Kooning

Did you have to figure out where your breakfast was going to come from today?


Are you wondering where the money for supper is?

Do you have to make a choice between paying rent and eating?

Does your next meal depend on which food pantry is open?

Do you worry more about if you’ll eat than what you’ll eat?

Yeah, me neither.

In fact, as I write this I’m quite hungry. But I don’t have to make a choice whether to eat or not to eat.

Knowing that that makes me feel a little bit freer, and a little bit richer. Rich enough to share what I have with others.

Yesterday’s gift of time … Took some cans of food to our local library to help St. Vincent DePaul‘s January food drive. 

If you can, make a contribution to a food bank this month and help a family that faces food insecurity.

About Eric Winger

Our perception of time is key to how we use our time. The most fundamental way to change that perception is to give our time. This opens us up to new opportunities and ideas from which we can build to really make a difference. ... Yes, we *do* have time to make a difference!
