While I’m rebooting, have a lovely poem by Lebannen:

Salt of the Gods

They need us, but not
for Their existence.

You can survive on bread
and water, after all,

and go your whole life
without knowing beauty,

or a kind touch,
or a gentle word.

But mere existing
is not enough.

How much better
it is to have

salt and spice
to flavor your food,

the glory of spring and
the soft peace of autumn,

loved ones to
embrace you,

and dear friends
to share your joy.

No, They do not need us
for Their existence–

They need us so
that They may live,

for our love is the feast
on Their sacred table.
