First step, tea and coffee at the Quickway Diner for a talk that lasts about 2 hours.
Second step, tea, coffee and chicken soup at the Goshen Diner and a walk on the Heritage Trail. You talk, you listen, you think and then you go home alone to think some more.
You think some more. You feel a lot.
Chicken soup really does have magical powers for the mind and soul.
You decide if you will remember being hungry or being Fed Well. You wonder if you will both choose to be Fed Well together.
