A Classical Conversation

Join the conversation! An eclectic group of folks have joined in to carry out the classical conversation; some of these folks may share or represent views we don't hold. We need them to be dialectic and have a classical conversation, and they need us too! So thanks for being patient with us and our fellow participants.

Timeless Thursdays: Revisiting Some Archived Articles that Have Not Been Lost, but May Have Been Forgotten and Are Worth a Fresh Read

 

 

Does your Christmas sparkle with music, laughter and wit? Has the food you labored over for hours disappeared in minutes? Has your family learned to linger and enjoy one another's company?

 

One year, my extended family celebrated Thanksgiving at a reconstructed French and Indian War fort, where I worked as a volunteer. A fire burned in the stone hearth and we dined on traditional fare by beeswax candlelight. In this gorgeous setting it would be a travesty to gobble and go, but that is what we did! That was a turning point for me. I realized we need to teach our families to feast together, using humor, art, and ceremony.
