The “Feeling” of Flavor

Flavorful is not the chip in front of me.

It is seeing the knowledge in my great-grandmother’s eyes as she looks down

It is the power of her fingers holding up my whole arm

It is knowing that, in touching her hand, I feel a lifetime of experiences

It is the insightfulness I discover when she speaks to me

It is the feel of a tongue that speaks words of wisdom

Flavorful is the kiss from her lips that says, “I love you.”

Compared to these things, the chip has no flavor at all.
