Eli was lying on the floor of my bedroom, reading the letters at the bottom of this poster. When he was done, I told him what it said.

He replied, “that’s momma’s picture! She hanged it on the wall!”

I said, yes, what do you think is going on in that picture?

“It’s two people! They like each other.”

What do you think they are doing? (It’s a self portrait of the artist and his wife. Presumably, he is sketching while they cuddle together)

“They are eating. Two people who like each other are eating. They are snacking!”

And there you have it. Wades give and receive love through food. From the mouths of babes.
