Eating is touch.  We first smell (i.e. micro-touch) and then taste (i.e. macro-touch) the environment.  Then, after this sensory kiss, we ingest the environment, and it touches us inside as we let it in deep inside us, like a lover’s tongue. Eating is intimacy between Ego and Eco.  Eating is sex, eating is union, eating is pleasure.  Partake.
