“It seems to me that our three basic needs, for food and security and love, are so entwined that we cannot think of one without the other.”

[M. F. K. Fisher]


Basic needs are associated with survival, but not just to sustain a life, but also to nurture it.

“Two of man’s basic needs are to love and to share,” Mother Angelica tells us. “Both of these needs are satisfied in greater or lesser degree by friendship.”


The gifts of friendship, feed and bless us.
