Description: Does Food Show the World Is Our Friend? will be the subject of the monthly Learning to Like the World workshop taught by Barbara Allen and Robert Murphy, popular teachers at area community centers. They'll discuss these deep and humorous sentences by Eli Siegel, founder of Aesthetic Realism: "A child grows from 12 pounds to 80 pounds through making the world himself. In eating anything, we assimilate the world; that is, the world becomes like ourselves. The fact that we need food in order to have the strength to complain of the world is one of the great signs that the world is more friendly than we know." For young people 5-12.
